Thinking about Rest Stops
While on my drive out west I found myself thinking about rest stops along the way. When you are doing long drives from place to place rest stops are something that are necessary for safe drives. While there are some across both Northern Ontario and in Manitoba, they are too often poorly designed and laid out with washrooms that are at best disgusting. Wouldn't it be great rest stops were used as senior projects for architectural students. Competitions could be held to see what students could create bringing new ideas and new technologies to something as simple as rest stops for travellers. Using students would give them opportunities to see their work realized and create more interesting environments for travellers as they drive across Canada on the TransCanada highway.
