Parking lots

Micahel Kimmelman had an extensive piece on parking lots in the NY Times. Online it came with a slideshow of parking lots that was a nice distraction. But I was baffled by the range used in estimating the available parking as "105 million and maybe as many as 2 billion parking spaces in the United States." That's a big difference.

Here is Renzo Piano's parking for Fiat in Turin:

And the parking lot at DIA: Beacon got a nod too:

It's great to see so many street trees breaking up the expanse of asphalt. It must be great knowing that wherever you park your car will be shaded as well. Here in snow country we don't have that luxury due to winter snow plowing requirements.
