    (competition proposal)

    Proposal for the bicycle parking competition in the city of Novi Sad, Serbia.
    The idea was to design an attractive shaped form that would be the architectural landmark of the area around the well known shopping center "SPENS".
    Design that would have the function of bicycle parking but also a high aesthetic sculptural appearance in the "parametric-driven" esthetics sense, that would break the usual Cartesian language of spacial organisation and forms.
    The key feature of our proposal is the usage of modern technologies of parametric -driven shape generation that could potentially fit all the 5 given location for the parking, while keeping the same construction topology and design.
    This organic and expressive formed structure would be very easy to build using CNC technology, since it is designed using NURBS geometry; and all of the surfaces are planar or single side curved unrolled planar surfaces, hence we explicitly avoided using more costly and complicated double curved surfaces.

  • Front side

    Avant-garde proposition for the Novi Sad bicycle parking competition, great chance to test digital fabrication process and parametric topologies.

  • Back side
    View form the street. All the bicycle riders silhouettes are perforations algorithmically controlled. During the night it would give spectacular effect of glowing silhouettes, because of illumination form the bottom.

  • Side entrance

  • Structural composition of prefabricated parts, all steel material, aluminum or zinc plates for facade plates with bicycle riders silhouettes as perforations.
  • CNC fabrication suggestions and ideas for the construction of different parts.
