In the context of the new paradigm of climate consciousness, cities need to adapt themselves. The first step concerns mobilities. The individual car represents a significant part of the cities’ carbon dioxide emission. Metropolises like Paris have to follow the Scandinavian model, by constraining drivers and encouraging the use of soft mobilities or public transport.

Then, infrastructures need to be rethought to host those new dynamics The project is a compact bike park. It proposes an efficient response to the storage of a large number of bicycles with a light intervention. The structure’s interstices own bike racks. Thus, the project becomes a sort of sculpture made of bikes, that allow the light to pass through.
