This car park is situated under the main campus of the University of Melbourne. Proposed in 1970 and constructed in 1971, the car park was created to cope with an increasing demand for parking by students and teachers.
The design of the car park is vastly different from the university buildings and the ambiance inside really has to be felt to be understood. The immediate transition from the leafy, bright lawns above to this dark underbelly is a stark contrast, to say the least.
