The High Line, New York, N.Y. (Owned by: The City of New York and Friends of the High Line; Designed by: James Corner Field Operations, with Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Piet Oudolf)
The High Line reclaims an elevated railway structure as a new public space, which connects neighborhoods, and offers a new model for “greening “ the urban environment. Designed as an integrated system, the High Line offers a varied city landscape with a new notion of the idea of promenading.
