Architects want to reinvent the bike shed01/05/2006 News
The London Architecture Biennale is a “festival grounded in the fabric and history of London, but one that looks to the positive aspects of change and renewal through contemporary architecture,” say the organisers.
‘Reinventing the Bike Shed’ brings together a range of exhibits and events which highlight and illustrate the critical issue of inner city cycling. “New parking solutions for the most efficient and least selfish form of transport are way overdue,” argue the exhibition organisers.
“Cycling is on a roll, and parking needs to catch up.”
