Skyscraper Car Parks
The Compressive Parking Lot Creates an Interation Between Car and Building

At first glance, the Compressive parking lot does not look like a car parking structure. Of course, once you take into consideration that the Compressive parking lot is located in Abu Dhabi, a city known for its car culture, you won’t be surprised that a whole skyscraper structure was conceived to serve just vehicles.

Designed as part of the advanced Exotic Variables and States of Change studio led by Thom Faulders at the California College of the Arts, the Compressive parking lot is an interactive creation that feeds off of the relationship between car, driver and building.

Essentially, the Compressive parking lot can actually sense the weight of each car so that when enough of them are parked, the floor itself compresses. Pedestrians also benefit from this compression since the surrounding areas of their paths can become on-the-spot speed bumps to regulate car speeds.
