Cycle park and landmark in one
It seems contradictory, but ‘De Fietsappel’ in Alphen aan den Rijn doubles as a large cycle park and a characteristic landmark. As the name suggests, the cycle park is shaped like an apple and is big enough to hold almost 1,000 bicycles. The apple shape emphasises the green side of travelling by bike and public transport. Iv-Consult produced the the full parametric design, engineering and automated workshop drawings for the 300 ton steel structure of De Fietsappel.
