    Also, how on earth do you get into the pink one, and how do you visit atmosstudio.com without having a seizure? Loving the form of their shelter otherwise..!

    Not so sure that the scafo-park one looks like it's very secure for the bike - I can see there's a trough for the wheel but is a D-lock or chain really going to secure the bike when there's so much front hanging out? Also doesn't look like you can get a D-lock around the frame and stand if the bike is wheeled in front first, and the majority of D-locks are pretty short... Bung a standard (but green) Sheffield stand in there and I reckon you're on to a winner. Like the provision for growing plants on it though, reminds me of the green-roof Sheffield bus shelters and that more street furniture should offer these opportunities!

    Well at least someone's standing up for the image of the profession on this. What are the RIBA doing? Let's hope for discussions behind closed doors, because at the moment I’m feeling particularly out in the cold when looking in the popular media for our professional body.
