designer's own words:Why hide a parking garage? So many urban parking garages are masked with brick facades to make them blend in with other buildings. Instead make a statement with your parking garage. After all, cars are designed to be seen, not hidden behind concrete walls. Think of cars as art. What product has received more attention from designers during development than the automobile? An urban parking garage should be a constantly changing art attraction. It should be like an informal auto show for those who want to see and show cars.
