Before there was bicycletecture


My friend Hamish lives on the top floor of a late 1960s 6-pack block of walk-up apartments, and this is the scene when I call by for a sip of his whiskey. It could be worse. He could live in Amsterdam, where they have stairs like these…

…and chronic rates of bicycle theft! No bike of mine will ever be stolen. I do, however, reserve my right to scuff many walls, until such time as architects devise ways for us all to ride to our doors, even those who live in non-lift service apartments. 8-House by BIG architects shows it is possible!
