For Greener Cities: Urban Bike Hangers by MANIFESTO

We don’t know about you guys, but where we live there is a dire need for safe bicycle parking spaces. Which is why this concept left us speechless. Called “Bike Hanger“, this ingenious urban bike hanger idea comes from MANIFESTO Architecture P.C. and pays tribute to a greener life in the city. Especially designed for Seoul, the project is looking to increase the inhabitant’s love for this healthy type of locomotion while using underutilized spaces around the city and reinventing them. The Bike Hangers are able to hold between 20-36 bicycles each and are said not to influence the traffic below in any way. We find the concept brilliant in its simplicity and can’t wait for it to be spread worldwide. Freshome readers, what do you think of this idea?

    i´m not sure the big one could work in real life, but it worthes try.
    bikes SHOULD be the main transportation in cities, besides public transport

    I love it! Especially great because instead of building new it’s focusing on updating the old….something we don’t do enough.

    What a wonderful GREEN idea! Too bad it wouldn’t work in my area. Even with bike lanes…people still chose to drive, even in the city. They will chose bus or metro…But all and all, this is a great space efficient design. I wish I knew how to ride a bike…
