The Australian art collective Urban Art Projects has just transformed an unsightly parking garage in Brisbane into “Landlines,” an artwork by Jennifer Marchant constructed of 549 aluminum panels.
It drives me crazy that more parking garages are not mandated for new buildings in San Francisco. I imagine it has something to do with the powers to be not having this level of vision. hmm Maybe I should get involved in public planning.
In addition to their inherent green value, the panels have been contoured to resemble a map of the mountainous nearby Main Range National Park, transforming its Albert Street streetscape.
