Bicycle will become the future of our sustainable transportation system. It involves the infrastructure and equipment in order to achieve the convenient use of this mode of transportation, such as parking area, bicycle station, bicycle racks, etc. Arrangements of these infrasctructure in our built environment should be carefully planned. As the infrastructures will occupy our public realm in the urban space, they should not only be functional but also should improve the aesthetic quality of the space.
During my visit to Nagoya University, I found two good examples of bicycle infrastructure. These examples nicely explored the possibility in designing the bicycle parking space.
