Howdy friend,

One of my favorite articles this week is about the future of gas stations. Weird, I know.

But with the popularity of electric vehicles increasing daily, it's a good time to reframe our thoughts around "gas" stations and their utility in the years to come.

The article features entries to a design competition held by Cadillac where architects around the globe "envision future-leaning fueling station concepts dedicated to electric vehicle (EV) charging." The winning concept features a dual bay structure plan, a sensory garden, health/fitness center, lounge, and cafe. The renderings are worth a look.

I hope you have a great weekend. Take care and I'll see you back here next week.

High fives,

Matt Downey
