Heavy Metal, Light on the Environment

185,700 Square Feet of parking, over 500 spaces, and a different perspective from the outside looking in. An exterior wrapped in stainless steel metal panels attached to canted steel frames protect maximum sunlight from hitting the cars within, while still offering views of campus thanks to the steel frame orientation. Opposite corners of the deck provide two stair towers, with one tower representing a grand pedestrian gateway with a beautiful glazed curtainwall system. Surrounded by lush landscape, the louvered panels and curtainwall veil offer reflections of the environment and put a different "spin" on your average parking garage with the steel pinwheel design.
