About the project Edit

bicyclope is much more than an urban furniture that produces energy. It is actually a working system aroused from the collaboration between the artist association i Collective e. V. and architecture office Zuloark. Following our idea of how urban design should be, we propose a participatory method for people to engage in the design of the cityscape. For this open project we work close with the neighbors exploring the way they move and spend their time in the urban space. This happens during several workshops in the neighborhood, discussion groups in social networks or during spontaneous meetings while we are out with our bicy-hoop.
The construction of the prototype is also completed in collaboration with the neighbours

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

we propose not only an object but a strategy based on participation, collaboration, learning, sustainability and responsibility.
