LJUBLJANA BIKE STOP

The main idea of the project is to make bike culture visible in the city. For that we propose ‘race’ as a urban game in which bicycle paths together with bike stations create a chain of possible bike tracks in Ljubljana. The stations function as check points providing basic city information and as ‘pit stops’ for service and as simple shelter in case of bad weather.

We think the bike stop must be always easily accessible and fit anywhere in the city. For that reasons, we decided to place it not on a meadow but on the sidewalk – between the cyclists and pedestrians flows. This location divides bike and walker streams, does not block the move and helps popularizing the bicycle culture also among pedestrians. Extremely minimal functional program and non-disturbing character make the bike stop an ideal safe meeting place.



The bike stop pavilion is sustainable and economical in use structure. We consciously resigned from the functions that require higher amount of work and energy, for example toilets. In the neighborhood there are buildings that contain them. We want the bike stop to be as self-sufficient as possible.
