Top Ten Parking Myths Debunked

Line Magazine publishes collection of articles analyzing parking architecture, design and policy.

LINE, the magazine of the American Institute of Architects San Francisco, publishes a special issue on parking. It includes articles debunking the top ten parking myths, exploring programmatic uses for parking facilities, and assessing the potential for good design.

From the editor's introduction: "In spite of the large role that parking design and policy play in our lives, they remain relatively underdeveloped. Automobile storage usually receives the least amount of design attention and construction dollars per square foot, yet it continues to be one of the largest components of our physical environment. The disproportionate relationship between attention and size has left parking as one of the great unsolved challenges in our contemporary urban environments."
