The Kinetic Rack was designed for the Golden Triangle D.C. area. The theme for the project was to increase the user interaction with the bicycle and rack. The series of forms are designed to draw in the user and create a sense of privacy in public places. There is one dominant opening that would guide the bike into place and hold it securely. The two secondary openings would allow for another set of cyclist to easily lock their bikes in place. The arms that hold the second set of bikes are two separate pieces that rotate outwards and lock in place between the ground and bracket; this lets the rack fold flat for transportation and storage. The end caps on the arms of the rack can be removed and multiple units can be connected to accommodate more bikes. This modular system allows for the bicycle racks to match the growing cyclist population within the city.
