Jury announces Trimo Urban Crash shortlist – now the public has its say.

This summer Trimo Urban Crash is taking it to the streets, when the Slovenian capital Ljubljana gets a welcome new addition to the city’s built urban mix. The winning Bike Base competition entry – chosen from among 220 project submissions from 37 countries by an international expert jury – will very soon be decided. 
Now it’s time for the public to have their say and vote for their favourite entry from the jury’s compelling shortlist. March 5th public voting opens, and runs through March 26th. Who will design this new cutting edge venue only time – and you – can tell!

With the exciting jury session only freshly concluded, Prof. Janez Koželj, Vice-Mayor of Ljubljana and jury president, reflects on the many strong and highly diverse project entries: “Next to walking, cycling is the most democratic and environmentally-friendly way of commuting. The Bike base will serve as a substantial contribution for all socially- and environmentally-aware citizens, cyclists, activists and bike-friendly people everywhere.
The jury witnessed a wide array of diverse approaches in the project submissions. Entrants pushed a host of technologies and construction techniques; they used different approaches, paying particular attention to industrial design, integration in the park setting, and the composition of modular units configured as towers, portals or pavilions.”
