The High Line: Reimagining the Accidental Landscape

The High Line: Reimagining the Accidental Landscape

Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden

Sun, Oct 29 
4:00 PM- 6:00 PM

Photographer, landscape consultant, and author Rick Darke will present a visual journey through the iconic landscape of New York's High Line and tell the story of how it was reimagined and redesigned.

Rick Darke’s presentation and photographs capture the acclaimed work of High Line designer Piet Oudolf and bring focus to the exploration of new landscapes emerging from vernacular origins. Darke's images illuminate Oudolf's transformative designs of the High Line's extraordinary public space, created on an abandoned, elevated freight train line on Manhattan's West Side.

The story of the High Line is beautifully documented in the new book Gardens of the High Line: Elevating the Nature of Modern Landscapes (Timber Press, June 2017).
