The Car Park

This car park reminds me of a grand empty mansion having been stripped down to its simple elements. Exposed concrete and shapes are all apparent in this car park, and has many fascinating period features, including the curved pilons, natural roof sun-lighting vents, and stylized concrete staircases. A good example of scale and fitting in to its town environment, whilst forging a modern identity through its Brutalist styling.
