This project is in Arezzo historic centre, a short distance away from the Chiesa di S. Agostino on the square of the same name. The vulnerability of the situation is of total importance. The project it is part of aims to create a relationship with a place in which neighbourhood relationships will be indicators of the quality of the new element. Once again, the lessons of the historic town are of the essence.

Miami Beach suffers from a lack of parking in areas that receive high volumes of visitors. It is a real obstacle for its residents at peak times. The city commissioned several studies for how to improve infrastructure and resident mobility. One of the conclusions was to provide additional parking both strategically and creatively.

The complex was designed as a strategic link between the historic city center of Padua and the developments of the modern zone of the city near the railway station. The project intends to house offices and shops in the main body of the building as well as a large parking garage.The site is located along a bend of the river Piovego, the main defining edge of the sixteenth century city, and adjacent to an open landscape and fluvial gardens. The site is a veritable “city gate” where the historical center, recent developments and the fluvial landscape converge.The parking garage is intended as the main car park for those heading to the historic center of town from the outskirts. The commercial building stands as the urban backdrop that screens the impact of the large infrastructure and attempts to regulate the chaotic city street fronts that have grown in the last decades.

Designed by WHR Architects, University of Houston Stadium Parking Garage parking provides far more that parking. The 2,300 car facility contains a Barnes & Nobel Fan Shop, Cougar Express Mini Market, Taco Cabana restaurant, offices for UH Parking and Transportation and UH Parking Customer Services. With 85% of the university’s nearly 40,000 students commuting from around the sprawling City of Houston and its suburbs, reimagining the garage as an amenity project made sense for several reasons.

The parking garage is located at the University Medical Centre in Ljubljana. The project was commissioned by a company that builds residential and commercial buildings in Slovenia and prepares sites for the Hofer commercial network. A condition of the investor was that a classic HOFER supermarket had to be located on the ground floor in the standard form and dimensions of Hofer shops throughout Europe. The task was a very difficult one for designers, since the structural grid used in HOFER shops do not correspond to the grid required for the rational design of a parking garage.
My mother is a liberal democrat who supports environmentally conscious legislation and business. So naturally, she opposes sprawl. I was recently driving with her through a 1990s suburb where the houses are built very close to one another, less then 10 feet apart. She said to me, “I don’t know why anyone would want to live right on top of their neighbors like that.” She’s not alone in having these competing, yet understandable, points of view. When discussing sprawl as an urban condition, there is no lack of vitriol. But at the scale of the house, most people want their space. As historian Robert Bruegmann points out, very few critics of sprawl believe that they live in it—it’s a place that is further out, less sensible, and less tasteful than their own neighborhood.
