We are loving the fact that as Field Operations and DS+R’s High Line keeps developing, new residential and commercial entities are following suite, popping up adjacent to the tracks, over the tracks, and even under the tracks.  And now, Konyk Architecture will join in the urban renewal which is unfolding in the Meat-Packing District with their new event space that will rest underneath the High Line adjacent to Neil Denari’s HL23 Condominium (previously featured on AD).

More about the winning event space after the break.

Konyk’s Flattened Field recently won the Supima Filed Design Challenge, a competition to design an outdoor event space for the developer Alf Naman.  The proposal is a walkable mural comprised of super-imposed layers of lines and tonal gradations. The layers of the mural are an abstracted way to illustrate the botanical profiles of pima cotton at various scales and stages of growth and development.

This “intense field of cotton graffiti” is for fashion and design related events, culminating in a “harvest” during Fashion Week in September 2010, the end of the exhibit’s two-month run-time.
