Episode 01 - The Big Picture - Top 10 Design Elements in Copenhagen's Bicycle Culture


At Copenhagenize Design Co. we have the pleasure of having Ivan Conte interning for us for six months. Ivan is from Italy and he is working on his thesis whilst working with us.

Ivan is producing a series of ten films and this is the first. We wanted to explore the Top 10 Design Elements that make Copenhagen a bicycle-friendly city.

What does it take? What are the design ingredients that have been mixed together to create the bicycle-friendly Copenhagen outside our office windows?

In this first episode we talk about the Big Picture. The design of an overall network of bicycle infrastructure that prioritizes cycling, encourages citizens to choose the bicycle and that keeps them safe.

The Big Picture is the key. As we get through the other design elements episodes we'll explore the details. But this is where we start.

We'll roll out the other episodes over the next eight weeks.
