"DESIGNING THE HIGH LINE" EXHIBITION AND WINNERS
The response to "Designing the High Line," our open, international ideas competition was tremendous. 720 people from 38 countries contributed their ideas, dreams, and visions for the High Line. The entries ranged from the highly practical to the purely visionary. The jury selected some of the most thought-provoking ideas. The winners, along with other interesting entries and a video about the High Line, will be on display in a large-scale exhibition at Grand Central Terminal's Vanderbilt Hall from July 10-26.

In addition to collecting comments at the exhibition, Friends of the High Line will hold a series of open community workshops beginning in September, with a variety of the competition proposals serving as springboards for discussion. At the end of 2003, Friends of the High Line will incorporate the community’s comments into a Request for Proposals, which will lead to the development of realizable designs for the High Line's reuse as public open space.
