In an attempt to unfold the complex identity of the public parking garage structure, “between dualities.. lies a whole spectrum of rays” propose an alternative reading for the garage as a liminal space that exists within a city. The work aims to emphasize the unique spatial qualities of this architectural structure while questioning its current/or future function.

between dualities

written essay (2019)

"between dualities" is a written piece on re-reading the public parking garage as a possible heterotopian space and a building typology manifested into the constructed environment through/by a technological shift. The text traces the history and differing stages of this architectural typology and its relationship to hegemony and binary divisions starting from 1905 onwards.

This text is also the first chapter of a larger body of work under the title The Construct Book.
