Bicyclope 2013

Interactive urban furniture that produces energy

5th - 11th of August, from 2pm until 8pm

Bicyclope is actually a working system aroused through the collaboration between the artist association i Collective e. V. and architecture office Zuloark. Further from just developing interactive urban furniture that produces energy, we propose a participatory method for people to engage in the design of the cityscape. For this open project we work close with the neighbors exploring the way they move and spend their time in the urban space. This happens during spontaneous meetings in Moabit with our bicy-hoop, during which we also think about the usage of the produced energy. After that, our team develops a proposal according to the needs detected for that group. The construction of the prototype is also completed in collaboration with the neighbors. By doing so, we propose not only an object but a strategy based on participation, collaboration, learning, sustainability and responsibility. For further information, please check
