The High Line: A Debate

Recognizing the High Line with a prize in urban design that is housed in the Department of Urban Planning and Design, in which social equity issues loom large, comes with a responsibility to acknowledge both the project’s successes and the occasional criticisms that have been leveled against it. In conjunction with the 2017 Veronica Rudge Green Prize in Urban Design, a panel discussion with some of those most closely involved with realizing the High Line will allow a deeper understanding of its value as an urban design prototype being disseminated and adopted worldwide.

The panel will feature John Alschuler, Stephen Gray, Joshua David (Co-Founder, Friends of the High Line), Robert Hammond (Co-Founder, Friends of the High Line) and Belinda Tato and be moderated by Diane Davis.
