When I first saw this parking garage design by Wohr Parking Systems, used under the St. Istvan-Ter Cathedral’s Square, in Budapest, I was wowed alright. This is parking genius. They take what could be an everyday nightmare and find an innovative design solution. I can only imagine how much it costs. Check out this link to the Wohr Multiparker to see the short video of how it works. Be sure to check out their other projects while there.
Brilliant! Notice that they do not mention any projects in the USA, but evidently, they have an American affiliate called SpaceSaver Parking Systems in Chicago. Their intro is an attention grabber…”Parking for the 21st Century and Beyond!”
Here’s another interesting site that my son Piers, the rising 4th year, civil engineering student told me about — where to see unusual things, places and design — where all types of unusual get exposed. Worthy of adding it to my blogroll. Here are just a few pics from posts on their home page. Unusual Life covers the gamut. Even Shepard Fairey is profiled and I have another post coming up soon mentioning him again.
