Japanese engineering firm Giken Seisakusho, which specializes in tidal and flood protection systems, created the Eco Cycle Anti-Seismic Underground Bicycle Park where owners can safely park their bikes in just 8 seconds. The buried cylindrical structures are only seven meters wide, but deep enough to safely store up to 200 two-wheel vehicles each.
