Argh. The Highline is so colourful and gorgeous at the moment! I can guarantee that I will be going back here at least every month - just to document it’s change from season to season. Honestly. It has to be one of my favourite planting palettes just because it is SO receptive to time. Grasses, seed pods, colours and changing foliage.
Just so good.

- The architectural intervention seeks to take the existing linear waste treatment process [import, treat, dispose] and integrate it into the proposed circular economy. Through identifying waste as a resource, the material [in both the treated and untreated state] can become the catalyst for new industrial symbiosis. The instigation of an anaerobic digester provides a solution to the sustainable disposal of the existing treated sludge, where bio gas can be created and fed into both existing and proposed systems, whilst offering a localised solution to Poland’s energy dependence. Through combining the existing, traditional mechanical treatment process with experimental growing and natural waste treatments, alternative processes and industries can start to overlap and form the basis of the protean production facility.
