A robust house of cards, 1111 Lincoln Road, a complex designerd by Herzog & deMeuron whose main feature is parking is a composition of cast-in-place concrete slabs that function as floor plates, columns, and ramps winding through the compressions and expansions in heights of the six parking levels, which range from 2.5 to 10.5 metres. The building is anchored by ground-floor retail and topped by a restaurant and a penthouse. A canopy above the retail spaces continues across the existing building to the new one, marrying the two structures that are otherwise linked only by bridges at each level. To carry life up off the street, the team wedged a boutique between the garage's decks. And the soaring seventh-floor parking level does double-duty as an event space, hosting fashion shows, parties, and concerts.
