Designer Islands

According to Zakkaliciousness over at Copenhagenize, Denmark is planning on creating an island in the shape of a bicycle, Cykeløen (The Bicycle Island) to expand the Copenhagen Capital Region and proudly display the bike to the world as a symbol of Danishness. It will be the first Danish landmark visible from space.

I think it's kind of lame. It seems like such a tacky thing for the otherwise chic and sophisticated Danes to want to create. What's happening to the streamlined, pleasing yet useful design Denmark is world famous for? A bike-shaped island just doesn't really seem in line with Danish architectural trends.
