If you can emphasize a balance between form and function, keep it beautiful and make it hip, you might be the artist/designer behind Hollywood Boulevard's newest crop of 24 or so bicycle racks. LA City Council President Eric Garcetti, CRA, the Bike Writers Collective and the LACBC are joining forces to sponsor a competition for "a unique bicycle rack for the East Hollywood community. This project seeks to add visual appeal and transportation amenity to its vibrant East Hollywood streetscape along Hollywood Boulevard between Western Avenue and Vermont Avenue."
