Manhattan en movimiento de Josh Owens:

Manhattan, la “Gran Manzana”principal isla de Nueva York, forma parte importante de la imagen de una de las más grandes metrópolis en el mundo.

Entre Marzo y Abril de este año, el fotógrafo Josh Owens, grabó secuencias de varias horas a lo largo del día, imágenes que después convirtió en este  impresionante video de 4 minutos, donde los edificios y todo el ambiente construido se convierten en el escenario sobre el cual se puede apreciar la vida y el ritmo al que se mueve “la ciudad que nunca duerme”.

Linear Parks, Emergent opportunities for green links: 


Due to the recent redevelopment of the High Line and Hudson River Parks, great attention and excitement is heating up around the idea of linear parks. These spaces are particularly interesting in that they often augment or re-use existing infrastructure of different scales and types, like railroad tracks, canals, natural waterways, highways, and arterial roads. This often has long-standing economic, social and environmental implications.
Designers of Hudson River Park and the High Line took areas that had been at the heart of the city’s manufacturing-based economy and retrofitted them to serve as nodes for recreation, a form of “soft” infrastructure for the city, making it more attractive to new information-economy workers. Linear parks are also unique in that they do not just turn underused paths into pedestrian-friendly green space, but they also serve as great catalysts for change and investment in large stretches of the city, benefiting multiple neighborhoods along their routes.
