A brilliant exhibition is to be housed at the National Building Museum in Washington DC: House of Cars: Innovation and the Parking Garage. The exhibition will be open between October 17, 2009 and July 11, 2010. Taken from the National Building Museum website:
“Cars. We imagine them always in motion, but they spend most of their time at rest. We have all spent time in parking garages, but we rarely stop to think about what they have meant for our cities and ourselves. “House of Cars: Innovation and the Parking Garage” 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.”
