good design is contagious

In the-middle-of-nowhere Wyoming, I stopped at one of the Rest Areas that occasionally appear along the Highway.  Carrying with me the mental baggage of distant truck stops, I entered this simple little building to experience a design that far exceeded all expectations. 

Most notable was their desire to demonstrate the building’s efficiency by displaying this concise diagram in the lobby.  Lesson learned: keep the public informed, and embrace the fact that good design is contagious.
