Finding beauty in the lowly car park. Came out a few months ago, but worth sharing anyway.

Simon Henley's new book, The Architecture of Parking Thames & Hudson, £24.95), casts an objective eye over car parks, one of the most important but most neglected building types of the modern era, and finds a strange and haunting beauty.

I love what the Kansas City public library did for their parking structure. Here's another view and a similar garage in Cardiff, Wales. Brilliant.

Oh. My bad -- the one in Wales is the library itself, but only temporary while renovations are going on.
