  • The Parking Garage: Design and Evolution of a Modern Urban Form
    by Mazhar Ali Awan
    Full Article (PDF, 361K)

On the cover: Transportation economists, engineers, and planners historically have focused on the various modes of transportation and the associated infrastructure. Few researchers have paid attention to the start or end of the trips - the parking garage. This research gap is filled by Mazhar Ali Awan’s review of Shannon Sanders McDonald’s book, "The Parking Garage: Design and Evolution of a Modern Urban Form."
