The first section of the High Line in New York’s Meat Packing district opened last week. Go check out the beautiful gardens atop of amazing architecture by Frank Gehry [The IAC Building], Polshek Partnership [The NY Standard Hotel], Shigeru Ban [Metal Shutter Houses] and other notable architects. Designed by James Corner Field Operations, with Diller Scofidio + Renfro, highlights of the elevated garden walkway include moveable deckchairs on the old railroad tracks, a water feature to cool your hot feet, and a glass viewing window that is like a futuristic TV screen looking down on the traffic below.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
