Exhibition on the Design of Parking Garages Features the Work of Paul Rudolph
"House of Cars: Innovation and the Parking Garage," an exhibition at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC, explores the unique relationship between parked cars and the built environment and encourages visitors to see these familiar structures in a whole new way. A showcase for innovation; a training ground for the 20th century's best-known architects; and now, a new direction for sustainable city planning; the parking garage tells many stories. The exhibit displays images of garages by Frank Lloyd Wright, Paul Rudolph, Eero Saarinen, I.M. Pei and Santiago Calatrava.
The exhibition runs through July 11, 2010.
