‘For Greener Cities’

Bicivia 7, by Batlle Roig Arquitectes 2018, winds its way through the middle of a major highway intersection in the periphery of Barcelona.

‘For Greener Cities’ is an article in RocaGallery.com comparing various works of European cycling infrastructure: a multi-storey bike parking structure by VMX as well as a bike bridge by Wilkinson Eyre in Amsterdam, a bike path by Batlle & Roig that winds through a Barcelona highway intersection, a Copenhagen bike-only fly-over, an elevated traffic circle just for bicycles in Eindhoven, and even a “bike lift” on a steep street in Trondheim.
