The bestseller is back in print, so don't miss out! Exploring the High Line shortly after the first section opened, I was struck by the rare sensitivity of the development: to the urban context and industrial past of the site, both built and social use; to materials; to natural vegetation; to the deeper needs of New Yorkers for solace, peace and beauty in the midst of dense urban living; and the ability to bring some ineffable magic to the place. That same rare sensitivity is revealed in this hugely detailed and insightful book.
The acclaimed exploration of the iconic ‘park in the sky' in New York that reshaped global perceptions of urban space is back in print. Since opening to the public in 2009, the High Line has rapidly become one of New York City's most popular and beloved attractions. Phaidon's bestselling The High Line was the first book to document the creative process behind this remarkable architectural achievement comprehensively from concept to completion. Seven chapters offer a multidimensional perspective from the minds behind the iconic structure. Now back in print, and featuring over 1,000 images, including drawings and plans, this visual masterpiece captures the High Line's very essence.
