BIKE

 

The law faculty needed to create a safe bicycle parking facility as many bikes were stolen from outside the school.

 

The law faculty building stands a heavy 20th century dominant building and I therefore chose to create a lighter structure, that did not compete with the massiveness of the school. It consists of a wooden grid and metal slats, making it a simple construction to build and maintain. On the roof of the wooden beams there is a layer of glass as to keep the bikes dry in the rainy Bergen weather.

 

The proposal was received with great enthusiasm by the school board and has been awaiting the completion of other site construction before commencing.
