Parkhaus Skopje by PPAG Architects is a fresh and modern take on a baroque inspiration. Remixing the art movement's opulent visual aesthetic, the Vienna-based team works alongside local architect, artist and author Milan Mijalkovic to create a parking garage with a decorative facade.

The bold facade is accented with decorative vignettes that catch one's eye instantly while referencing a traditionally baroque aesthetic. With an aim to pay homage the Macedonian city's culture, the proposed Parkhaus Skopje parking complex fuses the country's history with modern day ideas and innovations.

The multi-layered building covers its steel structural framing with composite panels that are penetrated by light during the day while illuminating into a glowing architecture piece during evening hours.
