This project for The University of Akron consists of a 1,100 car parking structure, which was integrated into the previously established Campus Master Plan. The structure contains office facilities for the University's Parking Services department, a museum space and open tenant space for future retail. A pedestrian sky bridge connects the deck to the upper portion of campus over Buchtel Ave.
The location of the project is central to many University facilities including the EJ Thomas Performing Arts Center and serves as a parking facility for the entire campus. The garage blends with the adjacent buildings through its facade treatments that respond to the surrounding context of Akron University. The project successfully integrates a large parking program in a manner that respects the scale and fabric of the campus.
