2012 Newhouse project #2012334 | school bike shelter
Following the decided plan on how I wanted to create the shelter, I now had to decide on how I wanted the racks to look. The current bike racks are generic-black twists. The current bike racks make the space look messy and clustered. To maximize space, I knew the bikes would fit the best vertically. A single pole with handles on each end would fit wonderfully into the shelter and take the least amount of space. I decided not to go with all storage lockers because students are normally in a rush, and they would have to quickly lock up there bike. The poles take a minimal amount of time to lock a bike up, and they are easy to clean.
