Urban Realities at Docklands

As part of Melbourne's State of Design Festival, design teams were invited to a 3 day design challenge at Docklands, Urban Realities. Quite by chance I happened upon these surprising and intriguing interventions - all thoughtful responses to the Docklands challenge. This is the one I bumped into which led me to the others. Rather than a petrol station, here was a bike tyre pumping station emerging from a green bench on the bike path. And a very helpful person to assist with bike tyre inflation.
