13,500 Spots: Bicycle Parkade in Utrecht
The Dutch city of Utrecht is a sort of larger-than-life laboratory for post-fossil-fuel mobility. Citizens already travel more than 40 % of their inner-city paths by bicycle - and the trend is growing. This is why the world’s largest bicycle parking lot, designed by Ector Hoogstad Architecten, has opened under the square in front of the railway station.
