Presented with a confusing web of ramps and entrances, P+A developed a clear path to and through this garage complex in order to improve wayfinding and safety. A new entrance was designed for major visual impact with minimal modifications. Eliminating only two parking spaces, the nine-story, backlit, glass canopy directs visitors and is reminiscent of nearby Cultural District theater marquees.
