Rice University currently lacks a unifiable bicycle parking typology, implicating numerous problems for the University’s goals of a more bicycle-oriented campus community. Existing bike racks on campus are improperly used and made of contextually insensitive, off-the-shelf solutions. A simple and identifiable covered bicycle parking strategy will inspire pride in biking culture on campus as more and more of the Rice community prioritizes biking. This is where In Tandem comes into play.

In Tandem is durable, secure, contextual, modular, efficient. It is simple and it is light. Through its modest form and subtle illuminance, the bike parking structure transforms into a campus icon, easily recognized as it deploys across campus. In Tandem functions as a subtle intervention to inspire pride for Rice’s increasingly bike-focused community.
