Bike Rack Competition in Toronto: Which Do You Like?
OCAD, the Ontario College of Art and Design, sits in a wonderful Will Alsop building, right next to a pretty fabulous Frank Gehry Building, in what is becoming Toronto's "Art Corridor." So its gotta have arty bike racks, and is holding a competition to design a special one for the entrance to the area. They have narrowed it down to ten, some of which are interesting and some of which are pretty derivative of David Byrne's and some of the others in the New York Design Competition.
The ten finalists will advance to the next stage, where they build models and get reviewed by a jury and community members. See them all at OCAD.
