BYRON BIKE RACK PROJECT
This competition which we were shortlisted as finalists for combined everything I love about community space and right action for the environment. Art and good design transforms public space and creates place. I work with small community groups such as community preschools so understand the buy in and essential input from the people who live and work in the spaces we design.
Conceptually these concepts tell a very Byron Story. One of Waves, Ecology, Social Activism and an embrace of new technology all wrapped up in a playful low fi attitude.
These Bike Racks are conceived as meeting places as much as a place to lock a bicycle. Consider a Wi-Fi hot spot and device charging station with a solar collector. I saw these locations as part of an overall move to a Smart Streets precinct in the Bay that’s consistent with The Byron Bay Master Plan.
