As part of Artgineering team, I helped designing both content and layout for this publication aiming to help designing bicycle infrastructure in Lüleburgaz.
‘Lüleburgaz bisiklete biniyor - Cycling for a better city’ is a roadmap for the conception of an Inclusive Bicycle Masterplan. It investigates how to activate the full potential of cycling for
the improvement of various aspects of urban development. The project explores cycling as a catalyst for change towards a more sustainable, healthy, vital, inclusive and democratic urban environment and society.
The result of the study is much more than a bicycle masterplan for a specific city. It represents not only a traffic engineering approach, but a holistic vision addressing Hardware, Software and Orgware aspects in order to improve cycling and urban live at the same time. On the example of the city of Lülleburgaz, this book formulates recommendations and general principles for cycling in (mid-sized) Turkish cities. Yet the content is also relevant for smaller towns and larger metropoles in Turkey and other countries that do not (yet) have well-developed cycle infrastructure and culture.
The design proposals and recommendations are made specific for the local context. They inspire municipalities in Turkey and abroad and function as an accelerator for the improvement of the urban realm.
