What's the problem here? Getting started on your bike shelter design.
Around curie's community there are many people that ride their bikes. Curie High School has an empty room with a big space that is not being used right now. what i want to do is take everything that is not being used out of the room and divide the room into different sections so that each section can have a certain amount of bikes stored so that they are not piled up together. I also want to to create a place where poeple can now that there property is secured and safe. with these project i think that many people not only the students from curie but the community would also be benefited from it.
How do you Collect Info for this step of the design process?
My work for the Collect Information step:
I collected information by taking pictures of the room from every point of view, going to visit the room, and having a survey to see how many people ride their bikes to school.
How do you Brainstorm Ideas for this step of the design process?
My work for the Brainstorm Ideas step:
I drew some sketches of the room, and i made the meausrements of the of each side of the room too.
How do you Develop Solutions for this step of the design process?
My work for the Develop Solutions step:
My space for the bike shelter at my school exceeds 1000 ft. the space that i chose is currently being used for in school suspension. It is 2500 sq ft. based on the survey of the community residence, students and school faculty, the space would not only serve the school, but also the community and riders of the orange line.
How do you create a Final Design for this step of the design process?
My work for the Final Design step:
The room that I'm using for the bike shelter is located at my school, the room doesn't have anything inside. What i did to this room is that i took off the poles that were in the middle, so that the room can have more space to put bikes, and change the floor, i also change the color of the room so that the room had a better view. In the room i placed bike racks on one wall of the room and the middle. The room that i'm using for the bike shelter has a little room inside, i used this little room for a bike repair shop for people that needed bikes to be repaired and other things that they also may need. What i want with these project is for people to have a place where they know that their bikes are safe, and also have their bikes repaired
