Garage: the interior functions are obscured by metal louvers, 30 inches on center and 28 inches deep with a hidden glass façadeThe cavernous garages and the 40-foot-wide ramps that serve them are bright, following a lighting plan by Domingo Gonzalez Associates, and odor-free, thanks to a powerful HVAC system. Awarded with LEED Gold status. To accommodate 5,000 tons of salt, used for de-icing roadways, the department issued a Request For Proposal that emphasized design—a poured-in-place concrete, 6,300-squarefoot salt shed structure worthy of Tadao Ando that draws the eye away from the larger building.
