The Country's Best Parking Lot
Last week, the International Parking Institute (IPI) distributed awards of excellence to the country's best new parking structures. The Award for Architectural Achievement went to the GEICO Garage in Orlando, Florida. A parking lot blog explains, "The garage is architecturally imitative of the local civic center, demonstrating a contextual recognition and aesthetic that goes beyond the scope of the standard parking garage. The LEED Gold-Certified structure is designed to be simultaneously unobtrusive, allowing for unobstructed views of the city, and architecturally alluring, with perforated aluminum panels and a façade categorized by shifting colors and textures."

It's great that parking facilities are becoming more than just concrete structures and being recognized for it.
