1111 Lincoln Road Herzog & de Meuron's Parking Garage

Here is a different solution, a parking with shopping. My partner says "there wouldn't be parkings above the ground, leave it for public space", anyway, I think it is a nice solution that considers aesthetical details. Though underground garages leave more open space for the public space, sometimes, as it happens in Los Angeles, technical issues, earthquakes in the area, push cities to have those huge structures, like car containers everywhere in the City. At least this garage has been designed with concern for the urban environment and pedestrians.
