Eco Accommodation

Urban design is accommodating bikes in new and innovative ways

Implications - The increasing necessity of bikes in urban areas -- both for economical and environmental reasons -- has led to cities going further than adding bike paths in their approaches to urban planning. Instead, architectural projects are accommodating bike usage in their designs in ways that are both creative and aesthetically attractive. These enhance the quality of life for bike users, and show an acceptance that these design shifts must occur in order for urban environments to keep up with the habits of rising populations -- working towards minimizing eco and traffic-related footprints.
