One of the four teams will be selected later this summer to create a master plan for the High Line's transformation into public open space. The exhibition comes near the end of a team selection process that began in March, 2004, jointly run by Friends of the High Line and the City of New York. It's important to note that FHL and the City will be selecting a design team, not a final plan. The visions on display show the proposed design approaches of each team, but the master plan itself will be developed by the selected team starting this fall, with many opportunities for the public to play an active role. Updates about the design process and invitations to planning sessions will be distributed via this e-mail newsletter.
