west general robinson street garage : pittsburgh, pa
parking as urban experience
Client: Sports & Exhibition Authority of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County
This project spurred Pittsburgh’s North Shore redevelopment with a needed amenity for patrons of the nearby major league baseball park and football stadium. The garage holds 1,233 cars on ten levels. The design’s transparent stair towers animate views of the building for drivers on surrounding highways, and offer garage patrons dramatic views of Pittsburgh’s skyline. The lobby and two-story retail space activate the structure at street level. A double-thread helix ramp and connections to three separate streets create quick, efficient access. Weekdays, the garage serves commuters.
