In the Wake of the High Line: New Architecture in the Far West Village and Hudson Square. Walking Tour with Architect Kyle Johnson
September 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT$20 – $25
Explore the rapidly changing western edge of Greenwich Village and Hudson Square, where luxury apartment towers by star architects and new office complexes for major tech and entertainment companies, are replacing old warehouses and industrial structures.
With the departure of commercial shipping and related activity along the Hudson River, as well as the demolition of portions of the High Line and the creation of Hudson River Park, extensive new development began in the far west side of Greenwich Village in the first two decades of the 21st century. Explore a variety of new architecture in areas formerly served by now-demolished sections of the High Line, as well as parts of Hudson River Park. Included are buildings designed by Richard Meier, Herzog & de Meuron, Annabelle Selldorf, Robert A. M. Stern, Dattner Architects and WXY Architecture, among others.
Meet in the plaza between the Whitney Museum and the south end of the High Line, 99 Gansevoort Street.
Tickets from the Center for Architecture: $25
