Innovative Designs for Car Parks

Donovan Gillman writes that since most of us can't simply get by without cars, we need "more livable and likable places to park them." His post at Sustainable Cities Collective includes photos of some interesting car parks.

Donovan Gillman, a landscape architect, believes that "utilitarian spaces, such as car parks, present architects and designers with a unique opportunity to bring beauty and harmony to the everyday functional spaces that are normally ignored by great design minds."

From post at Sustainable Cities Collective:

"Modern design is all about "experience" and these car parks pictured acknowledge that one's experience of a private or public place begins the minute they pull up in their car. Innovative developers and designers are recognizing just how crucial this is – it's almost too late by the time the consumer arrives at the front door. The "experience" of good design starts well before that."

See the photos of these "good-looking" parking structures.
