PLAYERS: James Ramsey

We’re all familiar with New York City’s greatest new park, the High Line, but one small group of architects in New York is re-imagining that concept and throwing it underground. The Low Line project is the result of this small community based initiative to get more green space in New York. Co founders James Ramsey and Dan Barasch plan on re-appropriating an old abandoned trolly station on Delancy Street on the Lower East Side into a new subterranean green space.

Sounds dark and dank and dangerous, one might think, but Ramsey and Barasch have thought of that. With a new technology they invented called the remote skylight, sunlight from above the surface is gathered and redirected underground with such intensity that it can even support plant growth naturally. It’s certainly an interesting and innovative idea and I for one am excited to see if it becomes as successful as the High Line and other of New York’s urban parks.
