• Cycling provide energy through: Solar asphalt, Friction energy storage plates and Phosphorescent paint accumulates sunlight. • In Summer ponds works as air conditioner, in Winter a hidden public square emerges. • Air purifiers disguised as cycling sculptures. • Wet pipeline from the lake provides humid air to the interior. • Rainwater and greywater treatment. • Smart slabs increase the speed of fresh air. • Solar-ducts and maxi domes with Venturi-outlets.
LEGACY DESIGN AND USE: Project considers current needs and a future perspective. History records that the speed bike was manufactured in 1818 and we are in 2018 and the bicycles continue.
