To my mind, buildings like these foretell those we will be building soon with cycling in mind, as cycling is increasingly seen as a panacea for every societal ill. Fair enough too, given cycling really does aid public health, urban mobility and the depletion of fossil fuels. The trend toward undulating ground planes, that are often roof planes without us ever being aware, suggests a plane designed to help riders speed up to travel, and slow down to stop. And let’s not forget how much fun we will have.
