High Line NY
Once an elevated freight railway track, New York's High Line is now an oasis for pedestrians. It has been so popular that other cities are following suit, with plans to replicate the formula in London.

‘Greenway’ on South Bank to rival New York’s High Line


CAPTION TEXT





51





An innovative “greenway” that reduces flooding and links forgotten parks and railway arches has won a design competition to improve the area behind Albert Embankment for cyclists and pedestrians.
The zone has been dubbed central London’s “missing link” and it is hoped it could rival New York’s High Line — the defunct elevated railway transformed into a park and major tourist draw.
The route runs from the Garden Museum, in St Mary’s Church beside Lambeth Palace, to Spring Gardens at Vauxhall — formerly Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, where Handel’s Water Music was premiered. It will link neglected parks behind the railway line, with new attractions in each: a food-themed park in Lambeth recreation ground, art in Pedlar’s Park, and an open-air auditorium in Spring Gardens.
 The plan by Erect Architecture and J & L Gibbons uses rain gardens — ditches planted with trees — to draw rainwater from overburdened gutters and sewers. These green borders will mark a safe route for non-drivers away from traffic-ridden Albert Embankment.
The competition attracted 100 entries from 21 countries but the two London firms prevailed. It was run by the Royal Institute of British Architects and Vauxhall One Business Improvement District. Chris Law, a director at Vauxhall One, praised the winning design as “quirky and fun but very implementable. It shows a clear understanding of the history of the Pleasure Gardens and the area’s Victorian railway arches and buildings, while using forward-thinking concepts to combat flooding.”
The vision will now be worked up into concrete proposals. Funding will come from the businesses that make up Vauxhall One: they will pay a small levy based on their property’s rateable value, generating more than £4 million over five years. There may also be grants from the Greater London Authority and Transport for London, and firms developing the area.
Judges included campaigner Doreen Lawrence, the mother of race murder victim Stephen, and Garden Museum director Christopher Woodward.

    繼紐約高線公園成功變廢為寶並獲得巨大經濟效益之後,倫敦版的高線公園也于近日初具雛形。
    正在修建中的高線公園從蘭貝斯宮旁的花園博物館延伸至原沃克斯豪爾樂園所在地,被倫敦人親切地稱為“缺失的一環”。該設計方案是英國皇家建築師協會從來自21個國家的100個方案中精心挑選出來的。設計師稱,設計的靈感來自17世紀中期至19世紀中期存在于沃克斯豪爾的遊樂花園,旨在為倫敦市民提供一條帶有文化氣息的新路線。
    建成後的高線公園將在泰晤士河南岸形成一條空中觀景走廊,走廊上布滿花園和藝術裝置,成為市民休閒娛樂和欣賞大型藝術作品的樂園。更為重要的是,這條空中走廊把現有的和新建的美術館、公共藝術區、露天禮堂等連成了一片。竣工的高線公園所在地將成為倫敦未來的新興藝術區。
    目前,高線公園的規劃所在地擁有“煤氣廠”和比肯斯菲爾德兩家當代藝術中心。一家名為“內閣”的美術館將于今年夏天建成。明年,英國當代藝 術家達米安‧赫斯特的畫廊也將入駐新港街。有計劃顯示,沃克斯豪爾車站旁廢棄的火車橋將成為藝術品的展示空間。沃克斯豪爾地區的負責人說:“我們的想法是 讓藝術區以一種綠色和有趣的方式出現。”
    據悉,建造高線公園的資金大部分來自當地企業,每一家企業把利潤的1%捐獻出來,預計5年裏將達到400萬英鎊。另有一部分資金將來自倫敦交通局和市長辦公室。
