INTERVIEW: Landscape Architect James Corner On NYC's High Line Park

Click here to view the embedded video.

NYC’s High Line is a project that exemplifies effective adaptive urban re-use in a city that is littered with structures and spaces that have since reached the end of their useful life. By turning an abandoned, elevated freight train track into a public park, this project has redefined the New York experience, affording never-before seen views of the city’s surrounding natural landscape as well as an expansive and intimate look into one of the world’s most dynamic urban environments. With the completion of the rest of the High Line currently in the works, we couldn’t think of a better time to catch up with one of the brilliant minds behind the design of this beautiful public space. I recently sat down with landscape architect James Corner, the lead designer behind the High Line, to get his personal perspective on the what it was like to take an abandoned train track and turn it into one of NYC’s best loved spots of greenery. Read on for my exclusive interview with James Corner below…

The 4MM Jetpack Could Give You the Boost You Need to Run a Four-Minute Mile

4MM jetpack, 4MM ASU, 4MM jet propeller, jetpacks, running jetpacks, running propulsion, DARPA jetpack, 4 minute mile, runners jetpack, running jetpack boost, US Military technology, US military jetpack, US military 4MM

A four-minute mile is just a dream for most people, but not if the US Military has anything to do with it. DARPA (the Military’s research arm) is in the process of designing a jetpack that could help soldiers run faster. The jetpack sits on the back like a backpack and propels the individual forward. In testing, even with the additional weight, soldiers were able to run faster and with less energy. While the pack may make all the difference for a soldier in a combat situation, perhaps in the future it will also be available to those of us who just want a boost on our daily jog.

Vienna-based Mischer’traxler captured the textures and shapes of different vegetables to create a colorful line of tablewear. Called Reversed Volumes, the long-lasting ceramic vessels are imprinted with the forms of veggies and fruits, and each bowl is as unique as the piece of produce that produced it.

Yesterday was Park(ing) Day 2014 - Send us Photos of Pop-Up Parks Near You!

park(ing) day, parking day, parking day 2014, urban space, public space, green design, sustainable design, park, parklet, urban activism, urban design, green events, eco art, green art

Yesterday was Park(ing) Day, and we’d love to see your photos of the most spectacular pop-up parks near you! If you’ve never heard of Park(ing) Day before, it’s a global event where parking spaces are re-purposed into mini park spaces for people to enjoy. It’s an opportunity for people to take the streets back from gas-guzzling vehicles for a day, and interact with one another in fun and creative ways. In past years, we’ve seen little libraries, mini golf courses, yoga spaces, and even faux forests, and we’re looking forward to seeing the day brought.

If you’re joining in on the Park(ing) Day festivities in your city, send us your pics and we’ll publish them on Inhabitat! Tweet us your photos at @Inhabitat with the hashtag #ParkingDay, or email us at editor[at]inhabitat.com with “Parking Day” in the subject line. Don’t forget to tell us where you spotted your Park(ing) Day park so we can share your find with other readers!
