In Tokyo, cars dispose of a complex network of domestic, local and metropolitan roadways. Our project aims to hack this system using the bike, and make every street in Tokyo more bikeable.
We first categorized different streets into types. Each type provides a different set of functions. Some are very straight and fast, easy to pursue through the city and others are more lively and narrow. Our goal is not to make all streets the same (as this often happens with bike lanes) but rather to maintain each type’s special character. The picture we had always in mind was one of a ski resort, where different slopes are marked out by different colors that identify very different experiences.
