A part of the Blue Sky Center's 5-5-5 residency in the high desert of California, this bus shelter was built for the 531 residents of New Cuyama. Until April 21st 2018 the town did not have a single bus shelter for children waiting for the bus in 100F+ of heat in the winter and 60mph+ winds and rain in the winter. 

The shelter was fabricated using re conditioned oil pipes left behind from the oil industry that formed the rural town in the early 1950s and supplemented with other materials purchased with funding acquired by the Blue Sky Center.
