This, of course, led me to look at parking garages as a "type". Here are two examples - the first from San Luis Obispo, California.
...the above design is an attempt to surround the structure with a "skin" reminiscent of a downtown building.
The next example is from St. Louis, Missouri. It is an example of "expressed" and "refined" structure - showing the garage for what it is.
I like the more straightforward and refined approach.
