An Escapekit is a ticket from job to job in the industry I work in. Join me on my journey to find work that I wish I put in my kit and share the work you put in yours.
Design and landscape studio Diller Scofidio + Renfro helped create the HighLine. A new 1.5-mile long public park built on an abandoned elevated railroadstretching from the Meatpacking District to the Hudson Rail Yards in Manhattan.
Inspired bythe melancholic, unruly beauty of this postindustrial ruin, where nature hasreclaimed a once vital piece of urban infrastructure, the new park interpretsits inheritance. It translates the biodiversity that took root after it fellinto ruin in a string of site-specific urban microclimates along the stretch ofrailway that include sunny, shady, wet, dry, windy, and sheltered spaces.
