Architects tried to incorporate the wild, slightly overgrown look of the elevated patch of railway that made it so enchanting. Although many developers originally wanted to tear down the railway, a campaign to turn the abandoned property into a park was launched and now the High Line has become a coveted strip of real estate development. Architect Ricardo Scofidio describes the delicate balancing act that went into this project: “It’s almost a ying-yang between pavement and planting, and I hope that one will have the feeling that if you didn’t do anything the plants would just continue to grow and take over again.” |AP|
