What's the problem here? Getting started on your bike shelter design.
Cuie Bike Shelter
Jim Rohn once said; “Whatever good thing we build ends up building us”, if we build this bike shelter it will change how we see things today in society and will influence our school to be physically fit. It will be highly beneficial not only to our school but to Chicago as well. A bike shelter will improve our school, our community, and even our city. I strongly believe that if a bike shelter is constructed in our school it will change how our school, our community and most importantly our city will view the bike rider’s life choice. It will bring a whole different side to living healthy and will promote fitness and exercise in our lives and everyone’s around us. A bike shelter in our school will be extremely beneficial for our school. Our school will be one of the first schools to have a bike shelter and will encourage other schools that have riders to make a shelter. The shelter will also benefit our school by promoting physical fitness and encourage teens to take their old bikes out of their garages and ride them to school. The bike shelter will help our community because the city will now have to enforce bike lanes in the streets to guide riders safely to school. This will benefit our community because it will force the city to fix the streets and will make communities safer because now the Chicago police department will have to make sure the lanes are safe for bike riders. This will not only benefit the school and community but our city as well. Cities will look at Chicago as a school that cares for better educations and start making changes in their cities. All these changes will highly benefit Chicago, our community and most importantly our schools. We must strive for better things that will little by little lift us up as being one of the best cities in America.
How do you Collect Info for this step of the design process?
My work for the Collect Information step:
Well, I drew a few sketches to try to get a bigger picture of what i could possilbly do for my schools bike shelter. I had a problem trying to figure out whether it would be indoors or outdoors but at the end i might choose an indoor bike shelter.
How do you Brainstorm Ideas for this step of the design process?
My work for the Brainstorm Ideas step:
How do you Develop Solutions for this step of the design process?
My work for the Develop Solutions step:
After Brainstorming possible ideas for a good bike shelter, I designed a prototype. Afterwards many new ideas came to my mind. For example, I removed the entrance walls that didnt really make much sence where they were. Then I placed Automatic electronic doors in the front of the building. Now im working on how I could make a second floor to this building....
How do you create a Final Design for this step of the design process?
My work for the Final Design step:
After analyzing all the data I’ve collected to create a well-structured bike shelter, I strongly feel like the final structure meets the necessities of every bike rider seeking shelter and rest for their bikes and themselves. The bike shelter will be placed behind the B-Building of Curie High School. I feel like it's a proper place for this bike shelter to be to meet the necessities of all riders from every direction. Also in this shelter I’ve included a second floor in which there's a rest area. In this resting area I’ve included a food court for hungry and thirsty bike riders. The food court will meet the necessities of all riders who are seeking food to replenish their strength to keep riding. In the rest area I’ve also included bathrooms, couches, and public computers. All these could meet the necessities of riders that need to use the bathroom, rest for a little, or check a safest route to get to where they need to get. These designs not only meets the necessity of school bike riders, but can also meet the necessity of the community.
