Our current exhibition, ‘Multi-Stories: Let’s Talk About Car Parks’ features in this month’s edition of Parking Review - read the full article here. If you haven’t visited it yet, the exhibition runs until the end of January and is open daily Tuesday - Friday between 10:00 - 16:00. We also made a film about the topic, which you can watch here.

 

‘’ Car parks are usually seen as one of the least compelling ingredients of a place, and yet designers across the UK and internationally are developing a new generation of car parks that challenge past practice and showcase innovation and creativity. Seemingly contradictory uses are layered and blended together in radical compositions that deliver new hybrid typologies or eclectic neighbourhood ensembles. 

 

Furthermore, the development of autonomous vehicles, automated car parks, on demand services and intelligent applications is predicted to profoundly change our travel behaviour and our physical environment – our streets and our car parking facilities. One thing is clear: The monocultural car park as we know it will soon reach its expiry date and we are keen to consider what will replace it over time.’’
