Calling all bike enthusiasts! The Architecture Foundation is delighted to announce the launch of an open international design competition to design a modular, portable and secure cycle parking solution on behalf of Better Bankside Business Improvement District (BID). The competition forms part of Better Bankside’s ‘Smart Green Business strategy’ – a new EU funded project to improve local businesses’ environmental performance. This currently includes a free recycling scheme, public realm improvements and information events. It is also actively promoting cycling for commuting and work related trips though its Travel Planning program. The issue of cycle parking has been high on the agenda of Better Bankside for the last few years, and now BID has set a target to establish a secure cycle park in the western end of the BID area by March 2011. So do you have an solution for these cyclists up your sleeve? Enter the competition today!
