This 6-story parking structure was built to accommodate future expansion and needs for Arizona State University.

Parking and transportation are crucial aspects of any university campus, necessitating a balance between long-term student parking, visitor needs, and safety. The Packard Drive Parking Structure was designed to meet these demands, including accommodating sporting event parking, all within an aesthetically pleasing composition.

The design employs post-tension, rigid frame construction to create a garage free of shear walls, promoting an open and transparent environment. This approach maximizes natural light, maintains clear sight lines, and enhances passive safety and security.

This project has received several design accolades, including the Best of Concrete Award from Engineering News-Record and Valley Forward’s Environmental Award for Art in Public Places.
