Open Call: Pop up Bike parking

NEWS |

The LFA and Network Rail have launched a new open call competition for creative and innovative solutions for pop-up, flexible bike parking facilities that can easily be rolled out at different times and locations to support cyclists using railway stations. The open call invites architects, designers and engineers to create a prototype installation, testing new ideas on how railway stations can adapt to the changing demand in bike parking provision and allowing Network Rail to provide easy to use and safe bike storage for cyclists, whilst they make their onward journeys.

 

 

In the last decade, stations have experienced a significant increase in the demand for bike parking, coinciding with the rapid implementation of pop-up bike lanes across cities. The competition brief calls for creative bike storage solutions at stations that can adapt to fluctuating demand through different seasons, weather conditions or major public events.

Following an initial expression of interest stage, up to six shortlisted teams will be paid an honorarium of £500 to work up an outline proposal. A winning team will be appointed in November 2021 and awarded £12,000 (including a £4,000 design fee) to develop a fully costed, feasible design that can be delivered in June 2022 at one of Network Rail’s mainline London stations as part of the London Festival of Architecture.

 

Detailed information for entrants is available here. The closing date for first stage expressions of interest is Thursday 30 September 2021.
