In NYC, A Bridge Covered With A Lovely Rainbow Canopy Made Of Threads

In NYC, A Bridge Covered With A Lovely Rainbow Canopy Made Of Threads | Nowadays | Scoop.it

Minneapolis-based street artist HOTTEA was in New York City recently, and took the opportunity to create a wonderful piece on the Williamsburg Bridge. 
By covering the top of a pedestrian tunnel with strands of colorful thread, he creates a gorgeous rainbow canopy above the walkway, which turns the mundane experience of going through the tunnel into a whimsical one. 
A lot of effort went into the piece—the artist and his assistant took 11 hours to carefully cut and tie in place 2,000 strands of thread in order to complete the artwork. 

View more images of this cheerful piece of street art at the link.

Why Cycle Cities Are the Future

Why Cycle Cities Are the Future | Nowadays | Scoop.it

The 2010 launch of the “Boris Bike” – London’s cycle hire scheme, was the clearest indication to date that cycling was no longer just for a minority, but a healthy, efficient and sustainable mode of transport that city planners wanted in their armoury.


There are now more than 8,000 Boris Bikes and 550+ docking stations in Central London. And the trend’s not anomalous to London: Wikipedia reports that there are 535 cycle-share schemes in 49 countries, employing more than half a million bikes worldwide.

However, the real question is: will cycling actually change the city?
