In the small town of Krumbach in the Bregenzerwald, there is cutting-edge architecture in unexpected places, but they have a lot to do with the expected, namely the arrival of a bus. Since 2014, Krumbach has been home to seven bus stops designed by internationally renowned architects and built by regional craftsmen. BUS:STOP Krumbach, these are seven bus stops that bring together the culture, economy and architecture of the Vorarlberg region in Austria.
In 2013, the association Kultur Krumbach invited seven international architectural firms from Belgium, Norway, Spain, Chile, Japan, China and Russia to build new bus stops, “Wartehüsle” in cosmopolitan design in the community. The well-known architects were each assisted by a regional architectural firm and twenty local craftsmen. The architectural firms received no fee. Nevertheless, all of them accepted in a very short time. The given rules were almost open. The designs were to have a connection to the region, be made of resistant materials and be functional. A dialogue with the people, the landscape and the local building culture and craft tradition was to be created.
A country bus connects world-class architecture
The BUS:STOP bus shelters can be found on country bus routes number 25 and 29. Architecture lovers from all over the world are invited to get on and off here. Guests of the Bregenzerwald region are made especially easy. The “Bregenzerwald Gäste Card” also includes the use of public transportation.
