Power Smart Bike Rack

Directly in front of Science World and in the heart of the bike trails community a very innovative and unusual work of art can be found.


The installation is part sculpture, part bike rack and part solar powered lamppost. Up to 12 bikes can be parked in the tree's roots, while another three can be hung from its trunk.


The concept for the project came from Spring Gillard, who teamed up with Better Environmentally Sound Transportation and Science World to secure a grant for the project from the city's cultural services and public art program. B.C. Hydro Power Smart funded the solar lighting, while the park board provided the land.



Location:Science World, Vancouver BC
