The Multiplier is a project by Art Center College student Julien Bilodeau, who has created a temporary and expandable parking structure system, made of a network of identical trailer vehicles, which has the goal of increasing the available parking area.

Formally inspired to a "causality form language", the concept has a low-slung look, a forward leaning stance and visual expression of effort, similar to that of a strongman pulling a truck.
