Bus Station slough – a spectacular new bus station of the British architectural studio Bblur Architecture . The unique 130-meter dome structure built in Slough (Berkshire, UK), contains a bus parking, waiting room, offices and additional services.
The main purpose of the new sign of the object is to create a transport interchange with the railway station, as well as the creation of a new, comfortable and safe, effective and aesthetic center of public transport.

In addition, customer of the new object was given the task of creating eye-catching and memorable “gateway” to the ancient British city.
