welcome to highline, again! we managed to visit the highline in a beautiful weather weekend – saturday (noon) and sunday (noon), twice. the planting are so thriving that at some areas you could totally forget you’re walking on a elevated park!
what to stream: check out the documentary urbanized (2011) where the project is discussed from the city, community, and design team’s perspective.
✚ phase III: more renderings on curbed NY
✚ this section of highline is just amazing!! the arching branches from birch trees create a mini corridor moment.
✚ water feature : not to mention it’s popularity among kids, the sound of running water creates a sense of running creek underneath the walkway. simply fantastic.
✚ the grand shot: years after it’s opening, the standard hotel remains one of the brilliant hotels in the world. the design concept & construction detail is just impecable. and it is very photogenic, too :)
we cannot wait to see the opening of highline phase III !!
