Enter the Portable Bike Corral Student Design CompetitionMarch 1st, 2013
Yerba Buena is a neighborhood in the midst of remarkable growth. Recognized by many as “the new heart of San Francisco,” it is home to the city’s highest concentration of museums and art galleries, thousands of residents, and unique shopping and dining experiences. As a thriving destination, there is a high demand for bicycle facilities in the neighborhood. To address this need, the Yerba Buena Community Benefit District (YBCBD) and its partners are sponsoring a student competition to create a portable on-street bike corral that is easily deployed in the parking lane when needed. This concept blends the traditional on-street bike corral idea with mobile openspace infrastructure like the Parkmobiles found throughout downtown San Francisco. Winning teams will receive a cash prize and the opportunity to work with a professional firm to fabricate a prototype. All team entries will be presented at an exhibition at the San Francisco Planning and Research Association.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE:March 1st, 2013
SUBMISSION DEADLINE:March 31st, 2013
The winning entry will receive a $500 cash prize and the opportunity to fabricate a prototype for Yerba Buena neighborhood.
