In the ever-evolving tapestry of urban life, ‘PeakPedal’ stands as a testament to the harmony between nature and architecture. With a profound commitment to bolster the once “Garden City” Bangalore’s (India) crippled ecosystem, the design envisions a cityscape that breathes life into the concrete jungle.

At the heart of this urban metamorphosis lies the simple idea of creating a mountain in the middle of the bustling city, which serves as a thriving ecosystem, blanketed in lush greenery. 

It intertwines with the very fabric of community development through the instrument of a cycle and designated lanes. It integrates the mountain’s vertical sanctuary into the urban sprawl by means of a modular tower unit containing elevators, ramps, cycle repair shops, and cycle storage units. But apart from these programmatic requirements of the cycle, it also integrates a vertical garden/farm space in it, giving a renewed form to the trade of local produce and thereby extending the street vertically.

Moreover, it recognizes the healing potential of outdoor spaces in the bustling cityscape. The design contemplates the creation of tranquil zones where residents can reconnect with nature, and find solace in the midst of greenery.

Complex design but not clear what is tried to accomplish here for the bicycle.
