Project Bike Racks

Project Bike Racks is a collective of designers working to develop functional public art. We’ve helped with the design of the physical bike racks, as well as the Project Bike Racks brand and website surrounding the project.

The Project Bike Racks logo takes inspiration from the “standard” City of Calgary branded bike racks.

The Project Bike Racks website is a space for people to see what we’ve been working on and to learn more about the project. Since installing the first couple racks in downtown Calgary, traffic on the website has exploded.

Placemaking

We know our bike racks help to create a sense of place in Calgary’s Beltline, so the website features a map and list of bike rack locations. This is art we want people to engage with.

HAWK got to collaborate with Clarke Studio on the BELTLINE design, an eight letter installation on 11 Ave and 5 St SW.

On the corner of 17 Ave and Centre Street, there’s a bike rack designed to read YYC in American Sign Language. The red paint matches the Calgary Tower in the background, and Calgary Roads helped to get the angles just right.
