Thanks to Peter for pointing us in the direction of this great bike rack outside the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh.The photo was taken by Daveybot on Flickr. If you look at the bike rack at the right angle they form the shape of a bike.
I prefer this versionhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/45487717@N00/406001442/in/pool-cyclingedinburgh(I didn't take it)
Again. Function! I saw an angled view of this rack art and it doesn't look like the racks are at all functional.Sorry, its just the bike planner in me.
Indeed, this kind of rack is not very practical. But as an art/design hybrid the visual effect is an important statement. Bikes as art, raising awareness.Beside, if they put a regular bike rack up here, nobody would know what it was... :-)
