Public parking space transformer in Graz 2019

A bicycle is as a matter of law the only way to an efficient use of public parking spaces - and the size of a bicycle is not restricted. In Graz (AT) this legal grey area is used to elegantly transform a parking space legally without permission. This is realized by simply parking one or two adapted cargo bikes. A space that is normally blocked by a car and therefore is unusable becomes a traffic-free and usable space for everyone.

The women's cycling course in Zurich ended last week. Last year the Metamorphosis project tried to organize a bicycle trip for families. It turned out that in this specific neighborhood not all parents ride bicycles. The course now enables mothers to take their children on bike trips. Let's ride then!

A high amount of street space is dedicated to motorised traffic, making it inaccessible to children. Currently, for children to be allowed to use a parking space for playing, it would be necessary to do that in a parked car!

Many urban spaces are planned for the convenience of large cars forcing cyclists and pedestrians to squeeze together on the edges of road. It makes no sense to most people, except for the one holding the power of overkill.
