Why Walk Though a Museum, When You Can Drive?

Not just any car museum. A drive-through car museum. The proposed building, by Francesco Gatti of Rome and Shanghai, looks exactly as it should -- like a glorified parking garage. Visitors cruise up a ramp that encircles the exhibition space (see above) until they reach a top-floor lot. From there, they descend by foot into the core of the museum. With glass every which way, everyone and everything is self-consciously on display: the motorists, the pedestrians, and, oh yeah, the cars. It's like a Saturday night on Sunset Boulevard.
