double takes: Bus Home

Bus Home is a bus station in Ventura, California. Dennis Oppenheim, one of many architects and artists who worked on the project said this of the station:

“The work depicts the metamorphosis of a bus becoming a house. This frozen animation of one image into another takes the form of a looping corkscrew entering the ground and coming up again. It slowly transforms from a bus to a house… For the tired and often alienated traveler the experience of waiting wished to be intervened by the realization that the transaction will be complete. The passengers will arrive at their destination. They will arrive home.”

I’m so impressed with the concept and artistic consideration put into something as simple as a bus stop. I simply love it! Has anyone else seen anything like this before?
