I'm loving these small examples of urban redevelopment that continue to pop up — many of them mysteriously seem to be in the form of bus shelters, but that's OK. We don't judge.

This one from 3form is particularly cool. The San Francisco Transit Shelters challenged 3form's Material Technology team to come up with a structure that was capable of energy generation. With a rolling red roof of 3form-encased photovoltaic panels, the shelters use the sun's rays to power their intercom, LED lighting, and even provide WiFi!
