Green-roof Parking Garage
Bing Thom was asked to design a parking structure for the university that wouldn’t take up valuable campus space, but would also centralize parking and help reinvigorate the campus. The solution was to place the parking garage underneath the existing playing field, burying the garage partially into a hillside. This places the playing field on the same level as the Gothic Heritage Hall – one of the centerpieces of the campus – so that the building does not obstruct views of the historic 1921 building. Soaring twin glass pyramids rise up from the garage, providing and atrium and staircases down into the parking levels.
