This new Washington DC Bike Transit Center next to Union station is a facility that not only facilitates sustainable transport, but also sustainable architecture.

The structure can house up to 150 bikes and was designed to make the most of natural daylight to cut down on energy costs. The Washington DC Bike Transit Center's thoroughly modern appearance is reminiscent of the Louvre glass pyramids in Paris or the ROM Crystal in Toronto, and the clash of classical architecture and modern sensibilities between the center and Union station is undoubtedly effective.
