This is a perspective view of my final bike shelter design.

Overall, there are some great ideas here. I was surprised to see that the cafe component that was a key part of your idea in the initial phase was not included. Also, there was some study in regards to materials when you were working in SketchUp, but those material changes were removed when you moved into Revit. Did the different materials disappear because they were more difficult to model in the software, or was there a shift in design intent: did you decide that one material was a better choice for the design for your structure, that it did not support your big idea, or was there another reason for only material to be used?
Good work - with a little more writing about your ideas (how, when, and why they changed), I would have a better understanding of how you got from your initial ideas to the final product.
Keep it up!

Your process in developing your project was very clear, and the information gathered at the earlier phases helped to form the foundation for your final design. However, something seems to have been lost in the Final Design. The exterior facade that was so active in the earlier sketchup model has been changed to a more typical facade. Overall, good work on the project - keep thinking about how your process can affect the overall design. Good job!

Overall you included many of the features a bike communter needs: lockers, workshop, sitting area. You should consider allocating some of the lobby space to the locker room to add in shower facilities. In addition, you may want to design in male and female locker rooms. In addition, you may want to take a look at the circulation within the building and the width of doorways. This is a good effort and would benefit students that choose to bike to school.
