nadstrešnica za bicikle / bicycle shed

“Garaža za bicikle je građevina, katedrala u Lincolnu je arhitektonsko delo”. Nikolaus Pevsner

Da li je veliki istoričar umetnosti bio u pravu? Možda, ali ovakvo shvatanje je dovelo do toga da su naši gradovi preplavljeni građevinama, a ne arhitektonskim delima. Svuda oko nas gledamo parkinge, garaže, nadstrešnice, saobraćajne petlje i nadvožnjake bez arhitektonskih kvaliteta, možda upravo zato što je neko nekad rekao da oni ne treba ni da imaju arhitektonske kvalitete. Međutim, naš cilj je da opovrgnemo ovakvo shvatanje. Zašto nadstrešici za bicikle ne bismo dali još neku funkciju: prostor za sedenje, odmor, druženje?

Smatrajući arhitekturom sve one objekte koji služe za boravak ljudi i za povećanje udobnosti gradskog života, nadstrešnici za bicikle smo udahnuli novi – arhitektonski život. Na taj način ona postaje mesto okupljanja, žižna tačka u gradskom prostoru.

“A bicycle shed is a building; Lincoln Cathedral is a piece of architecture.” Nikolaus Pevsner

Was the great art historian right? Maybe, but this understanding has led to the fact that our cities are flooded with buildings, and not architectural works. All around us we see parking lots, garages, sheds, traffic junctions and flyovers without any architectural quality, maybe exactly because someone said that they do not need to possess an architectural quality. However, our goal is to refute this argument. Why not give a bicycle shed another function, as a area for sitting, intermission or socializing?

Taking into account that by architecture we can consider all facilities designed for residing and imporoving the comfort of city life – we breathed a new life into the bicycle shed, an architectural life.
