Powerhouse Bicycle Rack #1


Yes, Powerhouse Bicycle Rack #1. The Powerhouse, a now defunct art gallery is home to 3 bicycle racks. This rack is a standard wave rack capable of holding 9 bicycles: seven within the rack and 2 on each side. You are probably asking, "Why does an empty building need all this bicycle parking?" Then you remembered, "Oh yes, the Memphis Farmers Market!" (Which starts in about a month!) The plaza which contains the bicycle rack has ample seating in case you need to change shoes or pack your panniers or trailer with groceries.

Here's how it racks up:

Form - Wave
Function - Pass
Environment - The rack's form does not mimic its surroundings.
Points of Interest - Memphis Farmers Market, Blue Monkey Downtown, Earnestine & Hazel's, Arcade Restaurant, South Main Arts District
