The High Line

The High Line was designed by landscape architects James Corner Field Operations and architects Diller Scodifio + Renfro. It was a disused elevated railway line that ran through Manhattan and has been recently converted into an urban park. This definitely challenges what we could do in abandoned urban spaces.

The video below is of Robert Hammod, Co-founder and President of Friends of the High Line, talking about the project. It is a rather long video so make yourself comfortable before you begin.
