The new part-elevated park in Greenwich Peninsula is remarkable for its use of prefabrication and parametric 3D modelling. But will it wash with the public?
New York’s High Line park is one of the most successful high-profile urban regeneration projects of the 21st century. Designed by US architect Diller Scofidio + Renfro and US-based English landscaper James Corner Field Operations, the 1.45-mile elevated linear park is situated on former disused railway line in Manhattan’s Lower West Side. Since its opening in 2009, the park has been visited by millions, has spurred the regeneration of adjacent districts and has generated several imitations across the globe. And the latest of these – by the same architect – has now opened in London.
