Arizona State University
Parking and Transportation is one of the most important aspects of any university campus. Arizona State University must balance long term student parking and their safety with the needs of visitors. For the Packard Drive Parking Structure this involved accommodating for sporting event parking. This structure is able to meet all of those needs in a aesthetically beautiful composition. The design utilizes post-tension, rigid frame construction to allow a garage that is free of sheer walls, and is as open and transparent as possible. It also maximizes use of natural light, maintain clear sight lines, and to promote passive safety and security.
This project was awarded several design accolades including Best of Concrete for Engineering and News Record and Valley Forwards Environmental Award for Art in Public Places.
