Young Swedish Firm Designs Bike Palace for Philadelphia


The hot young Swedish firm We Are You came third in a competition to design a new bicycling center in Philadelphia. (They must be really young- entry criteria include only those who graduated later than 2007). Its mission: "to promote bicycling in all its forms, and become a social hotspot for bike commuters, messengers, biking tourists and racers."

The fa├žade is made of the bikes themselves, "properly displayed to mark the site in the city and encourage more people to use the iron horse as a means of daily transportation."
