IDSA (Industrial Design Society of America) sent me this in the latest issue of DesignBytes:
Yeah, But Do You Think Their Restroom is Clean?: From the "Only in LA" file comes the story of an amazing renovation. What had once been a decaying, dingy, low-rent gas station (and more recently a white-tented behemoth) was recently unveiled in its new form: a slick, brand new, stunningly designed…gas station. But not just any gas station—with its slick metallic surfaces and geometric angles, this is the gas station of the future. Imagine what they’ll charge for cigarettes and gum!

It’s cool, but I still think Tankstelle Deitingen Sud (by Heinz Isler) is better.
