Parking in cities is hotly debated. Critics blast it as a resource drain, citing exorbitant costs and the loss of precious space among the biggest drawbacks. But there’s no denying that parking makes neighborhoods accessible and enhances connectivity and economic activity.

Register for this exclusive live course to learn how architects can effectively design and integrate parking structures into projects and the surrounding built environment. You’ll learn parking demand management techniques that can help reduce building cost, design principles that enhance user experience, and how to transform obsolete spaces into something functional, valuable, and attractive.

Future trends will change the way we approach parking supply. This course is your opportunity to get ahead of the curve.
