Trianon Car ParkEdit profile
Given the need to preserve the configuration of the park square, the project for the Trianon Underground Car Park had to make do with only a portion of the square free from the thick tree cover found around its edges and confined to a narrow slot compressed between the topsoil and the traffic tunnels located below.
As such, the garage space was defined by a geometry tailored within these limits but nonetheless capable of conferring the desired simplicity and logic evidently required by this kind of space and, consequently, its operation.
500 parking spaces were accommodated in a single circuit, horizontal and vertical, connected to the city’s streets at its upper and lower extremes. Level semicircular planes are successively linked by ramps at a 4% slant, consolidating spatial continuity as the prime value and diminishing the sense of confinement and isolation that often goes with underground constructions.
