CONCEPT

As urban migration increases, so does our need for densely populated vertical cities. This forces us to explore new methods for vertical transportation.

There are currently two main methods for vertical transportation that have prevailed for the last 100 years: the stairs and the lift. Stairs requires a lot of effort for a person to go up whereas lifts are 100% powered. This carves out an area of opportunity that sits between the two. 

Taking inspiration from bicycles, Vycle is a system powered by continuous cyclical movement. Its benefits are twofold: firstly, it will give stakeholders a more efficient and sustainable option to ascend, and secondly variable energy selection will be able to cater to people of varied ages and abilities, whilst creating a personalised experience.
