Creator of The High Line Describes A "Higher Quality of Urban Life"
His US practice, Field Operations, has been involved in the rejuvenation of Fresh Kills Park in Staten Island and Race Street Pier in Philadelphia. He says that projects like the high line are becoming "fundamental to the healthy functioning of cities."
It has been a "catalyst for reinvestment" and everyone around it is benefitting. Corner thinks that "high quality design of public space should not be something that comes after the fact, but something we invest in now."
