Architectural Value

These structures are not usually known for their architectural value. As Architectural Record has noted, "In the Pantheon of Building Types, the parking garage lurks somewhere in the vicinity of prisons and toll plazas." The New York Times has labeled parking structures as "the grim afterthought of American design".

A handful of parking garages have received considerable praise for their design, such as 1111 Lincoln Road, in the South Beach section of Miami Beach, Florida and designed by the internationally known Swiss architectural firm of Herzog & de Meuron.. Another is the Santa Monica Place Public Parking Structures at Frank Gehry's Santa Monica Place Mall, by the architectural firm Brooks + Scarpa.
