Sweet Pumps

Tropolism, an excellent architecture blog, has had a number of posts recently focusing on interesting designs for gas stations. Gas stations are such a mundane part of our landscape, it's a treat to see someone put a bit of style into them. I'd drive out of my way to support a station that put this sort of flair into their appearance.

The one above is from Copenhagen.

This is one from Sweden. It is now someone's residence. You can see photos of it when it was a working station here.

This one is in Montreal. I guess this one is "our local option".

Lastly, this one is located at the Vitra (furniture) corporate offices in Switzerland.
