The Chicago chapter of Architecture for Humanity is holding a contest to design street furniture: "Street furniture should not be limited to benches, we consider anything that makes a small space seem inviting, usable and safe to be street furniture. Including but not limited to: seating, planters, bicycle parking, sports or play equipment."

Grand prize is to see one or more of your creations built and distributed; you've got about a month to enter (PDF). Via Lynn Becker.

Related: Steven Vance has some ideas about good and bad bike parking, and notes that tomorrow will be a big day for high speed rail; Illinois has a good chance at some of the $8b.
