There’s parking buildings, and then there’s parking buildings

Even as someone who has designed a few for a living, I must admit that parking buildings don’t necessarily offer much to get exited about (they can get bloody complicated though, which is when it gets interesting again – at least for an engineer). But oh, this one is different. The very scale of it alone speaks of how the world works when bicycles are part of it as matter of course.

Too many bikes around? Store them like other places store cars.
