Vertical Parking Lot

Good idea & beautiful.

"spanning approximately 16 stories, two silos are used as a kind of temporary vertical parking lot at volkswagen's production facility and autostadt visitor attraction in wolfsburg, germany. the 48-meter tall silos are composed of glass and galvanized steel, illuminated by night. a conveyor belt system transports finished cars directly from the adjacent manufacturing plant to the towers' basement. from there, they are lifted into position via mechanical arms that rotate and run along a central beam, moving vehicles in and out of their bays at a speed of two meters per second."
