We’re not totally sure how Christian Peterson got all these bikes [1]on his building’s [2] façade, but he’s certainly given new meaning to the notion of a green wall [3]. The co-owner of a bicycle shop in Altlandsberg, Germany, Peterson decided to forgo the traditional storefront sign — instead he mounted his entire inventory of 120 bikes [4] for passers-by to see. An ingenious way to advertise his shop, save some space, and promote green transportation [5], this too cool idea is definitely more impressive than anything an overpaid ad exec could come up with!
