Spectacular Bicycle Park Oasis


Architecture and design firm JDS is calling its proposed Chongming Bicycle Park an "urban oasis." The competition proposed park, which consists of a museum, a visitor center, and a multi-purpose hall, is meant to "characterize the relationship between sport, technology, social awareness, recreation, and the evolution of biking."

Visitors can enjoy a car-free, bicycle-friendly environment as they peddle throughout the park and learn about the history of the bicycle in the museum. Each structure is designed with an exterior bicycle path so visitors can experience a healthy ride to the top and enjoy a spectacular view of the surrounding landscape.

Dagsson takes a snippet of a song—such as its title—and builds a whole stick-figure world around it.
