‘Cars versus bikes’ is an ongoing saga playing out in cities all over the world as riders and drivers fight for road and parking space. Menthol Architects [1] tackles the problem of parking chaos with their design for a plant-covered bicycle parking pod [2]. The idea creates a piece of modern city furniture that offers a place for cyclists to safely park their bike, while facilitating greenery, benches and a space for a vending machine and advertising that could help support care of the unit.
