The post linked above is a great overview of Pentagram’s design work for the 11-year (so far) project Friends of the High Line. The group’s efforts have been dedicated to the preservation of a length of raised train tracks in New York City, called the “High Line.”
Friends of the High Line succeeded in their work and this pedestrian-friendly attraction is now one of the favorites among tourists and, presumably, New Yorkers alike. The team at Pentagram must be proud to have played a part in such a terrific cause.
To paraphrase the famous movie line: “If you don’t tear it down, but make it stunning instead – they will come.”
