Garland Center and Parking Garage (2010)

While driving through Fayetteville, looking for the Bruce Goff Fulbright Fountain, I came across this interesting multi-use complex. It is mostly parking garage, skillfully hidden by the sloped site and the wrapping of retail along the main pedestrian path and traffic boulevard. The main retail block is the campus bookstore. What actually caught my eye was the beautiful randomly spaced sunscreen and rainscreen assembly. It shields windows and hides the upper floors of the carpark.
