Fun Experience

1. Our goal is to create a parking garage with “personality.”

2. Create a greeting as you come and go; add music, light, color and directional cues.

Campus Compatibility

1. Compatible “attitude” . . . with the architecture and the culture . . . an expectation.

2. Be sensitive to scale / proportion / materials / relationship adjacency to existing

campus buildings.

3. 52’ module that matches existing building mass.

4. Landscaping.

Unique Features of Car Park 4

1. Building 15 and Car Park 4 are envisioned as paired structures.

2. The vertical white aluminum fins provide a graceful, textured profile and allows the structure to change from a transparent frontal view to an opaque angular view.
