Once car parks were holy grails of Modernism.

This is multi-storey car park Estaçao de Serviço Passos Manuel, 1939 by Mario de Abreu in Porto, Portugal.

Streamline Moderne has to be the most beautiful architecture style there ever was, right? Isn’t this a spectacular arrangement of horizontal and vertical cascading lines! Original steel grid windows and even a clock tower at the top.

On the front facade a map of Portugal’s roadways made of neon lights designed by R. Leone, It has so many lovely details which are better noticeably at night of course. The roads end in arrows and Lisbon has a big red marker but as not to be confused where the viewer stands, there’s a big fat arrow coming from the type and pointing right at Porto. This is just the kind of modern artwork one expects of a time hailing the era of cars and that built such temples just to park them fittingly.
