City of Santa Monica Parking Structure #6 Livens up the Area

The City of Santa Monica Parking Structure #6 by Behnisch and Jantzen Studio turns an ordinary section of the town into something that looks more like an art project. Parking garages are not known to be a work of art, but the two designers have managed to think outside of the box on this design and create a piece that's noteworthy.

The garage is anything but plain, as each section is filled with different colors, with a red streak being prominent throughout. This section is from a staircase that sticks out from the surrounding parts of the structure. Instead of approaching this project with a closed mind, both parties saw the potential in a parking garage that most others would not.
