AD On The Streets: The Highline, New York


View Larger Map

This week AD On The Streets takes you deeper into the project, thanks to a new set of destinations announced by Google a couple of days ago, which includes some of the world’s greatest urban parks.

By using trikes, Google has been able to capture one of the most acclaimed urban projects of the last years: The Highline park in New York, by James Corner Field Operations with Diller Scofidio + Renfro.

This project has been the igniter of a larger scale urban renovation in Manhattan, benefiting not only the neighbors, and local store owners, but also the real state sector and tourism. It’s like the Guggenheim Bilbao effect, now cities wants their own “highlines”.

Part Two of The Highline was opened this summer, and Part Three has just been announced (more on that on another post in a few).
