Metro tram operator Uestra invited world-famous designers and architects to enhance the looks of the system. The 'Busstops' art project of 1992 resulted in nine remarkable bus and tram stops at street level [uestra.de (PDF)]. Jasper Morrison designed trains in 1997 and Uestra's headquarters is a twisted cuboid by Frank O Gehry.
