"A car park is a public facility, like a train station or an airport, where people change from one mode of transportation to another." -Herzog & de Meuron

 

"The structure is the architecture." -Herzog & de Meuron

The car park is an organism made up of a family of concrete slabs, deployed as floor plates, columns, and ramps." -Herzog & de Meuron
