What it takes to turn a students idea into real life infrastruction for a city

Exterior Architecture, Foster + Partners and Space Syntax have been working to develop their studies to transform cycling in the capital – the approach is revolutionary, and has potential applications in cities around the world. SkyCycle utilises the space above the existing suburban railway corridors. A secure deck, a minimum of six metres wide, can be constructed above the trains – applying lateral thinking, Britain’s engineering expertise and investment in transport technology could lead to the creation of an efficient platform building system.
