Undead Promenade: Deconstructing the High Line

Public Lecture, BarTlett School of Architecture and UCL Urban Lab, London, January 26, 2017.

 

Presenting ideas developed in the forthcoming book Deconstructing the High Line, this talk examines the ways in which the High Line park's uncanny revivification of urban-industrial ruins constitutes an experiment in slow practice aimed at countering, while simultaneously contributing to, the amnesiac speed-space of the accelerated city. The lecture is part of The Bartlett's Situating Architecture Series.
