Functional Public Art

Gone is the day of the simple, yet functional bicycle rack. More and more, cities and developers are looking for bicycle storage that is not simply functional, but also beautiful. This ranges from mass-produced manufactured forms in more creative shapes (such as the bicycle shape shown below), to much more creative, unique works of art.
