Autostadt VW Wolfsburg

I will comment. These stowage towers for boats are interesting. I had known the auto ones in VW Wolfsbug in Germany where cars are automatic stowed. I would not say that ones are ugly, but...
See.
I don't know if there are diagrams for that and included already in SSP

If you consider a library a place of storage (I know it's kind of stretching what you probably meant), I've always found the Bibliothèque nationale de France (National Library of France) very interesting for a library:

Detroit cold storage building

This is a 9 storie cold storage building/wharehouse in the Newcenter area, 10 stories if you include the corner tower. It used to have clocks at the top of the corner tower, but I don't have a clue why they were removed or where they are now.
