Plans Go Forward for Design Competition

FHL is very excited about developing plans for its upcoming international design competition. Architects, landscape architects, artists, designers, and community members will be invited to create visionary reuse plans for the High Line, taking advantage of the growing body of knowledge FHL has assembled about the structure. FHL has hired Reed Kroloff, formerly the editor-in-chief of Architecture magazine, as the competition advisor. The competition will begin this winter, with submissions due late winter/early spring, and an exhibition of entries and winners scheduled for May 2003.

Earlier this year, FHL received a $30,000 grant from the National Endowment of the Arts for the design competition, but we still require matching funds as well as a major sponsor for the exhibition, which will be a high-profile event held in a prominent Manhattan location. If you can help secure a major sponsor, please get in touch with Robert Hammond at robert@thehighline.org.
