New York’s Underground Scenery

New York’s limited space has been the catalyst behind a number of important architectural innovations: soaring sky-scrapers, underground tunnels and parks that decorate abandoned railroads. The latest, the LowLine, is a proposed underground park nestled in an abandoned trolley terminal – disused since 1948 – and gathers sunlight through a system of optics where it is dispersed by a solar distributor dish embedded in the ceiling. The exhibition was funded through a Kickstarter campaign which raised over $150,000.
