Tim Love, founding principal of Utile, Inc. Architecture + Planning, designed the Civic Arches proposal for the Long Island Index’s ParkingPLUS Design Challenge. The Utile team designed a garage prototype with a ground floor of soaring, monumental, concrete arches, both inspiring and economical to construct. Their proposal illustrates three variations of a prototype design that, if built, would free up more than three and a half acres of land in the Village of Rockville Centre for small parks and plazas, while at the same time adding more than 400 parking spaces to the Village’s supply of commuter parking. Love unveiled his firm’s design on January 16, 2014.
