UCH allows the redefinition of urban mobility through multi purpose, disseminated bike hubs. The structure is simple, low space consuming, sustainable and self sustaining through solar panels. UCH envisages modular spaces around the concept of bike park: secured, digitally accessible bike park for long term bike parking, open short term bike parking, safe and self cleaning facilities for responding to commuter needs (toilets, laundry), business areas (restaurants, bars), bike friendly facilities (cycle shops, reparing rooms and tools). UCH is open to use in its free access areas, while asks for monthly/annual subscription for digitally accessible areas (closed parking, commuting facilities). UCH is thought as a facility that is adopted and advanced by its same subscribed users, who will be the main promoters and carers of the hub. UCH is key for multimodal transportation and the location follows the main transportation hotspots in the city.
UCH responds to increasing commuting needs and multimodal transportation. UCH solves parking, safety, infrastructural issues that daily commuters face.
