NJ Sunset from NYC Highline

High above the city streets in NYC the Highline platform becomes an “Outdoor LivingRoom” for the local neighborhood. I was somewhat surprised and amazed by how popular and successful the new elevated park has become. As soon as the weather breaks the outdoor space becomes crowded with families, lovers, and strangers. This is one of the thousands of photos I took on this warm Spring day earlier this year. Hope you enjoy the view!

NYC Highline Revisted

I have been tracking the progress of the NYC Highline ever since I worked on an Ideas Competition
back in 2000. 

For some of my past designs on the HL – check out this link.

Diller Scofidio + Renfro: Reimagining Lincoln Center and the High Line

Diller Scofidio + Renfro: Reimagining Lincoln Center and the High Line. At a lean 54 minutes, it’s more straightforward than intimate. But its biographical sketch of, primarily, Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio has a surprising amount of depth as it charts their evolution from a firm known for imaginative art installations to in-demand architects. The film also probes what Scofidio calls the blurring of “boundaries between what is public and what is private” by focusing specifically (but not exclusively) on the work that went into New York’s High Line park and the redevelopment of the city’s Lincoln Center. Both projects—and the greater issue of public versus private spaces—promise to provoke discussion at a panel organized around the film.

“The conversations that happen between the films are really one of the most important parts of the festival” Bergman says. We’re trying to raise the level of design dialogue, not just among pros, but among engineers and lawyers and pediatricians and people who make pizza. As an Architect, that’s something that I think is really good for the profession.  It may even be a great place to discover a Beautiful Stranger or take a look at the NJ Skyline at sunset!!!

Creative Arts Center at Brown University by Diller Scofidio + Renfro

Designed as a hub for interdisciplinary arts and collaboration, Brown University’s zinc-clad Granoff Center is arranged around an atrium. ‘Living room’ lounge spaces spin off the six split-levels cross the central space. Media labs, recording studios and classrooms weave into the program. In a signature DS+R move, the 218-seat auditorium is viewable and digitally networked to the exterior amphitheater, allowing for video projections to stream simultaneously inside and out. 

Photography: Iwan Baan
