New Solar Technology to Build an Underground Park - with some help from Plant-in City!
Introducing The Lowline - the world's first underground park. The Lowline will utilize new solar technology to transform a 107-year old trolley station in the Lower East Side of Manhattan into a thriving underground oasis, complete with live plants and trees. The park will not only represent the future, but also celebrates the past by re-invigorating the old.
Support the Kickstarter Campaign and receive one of the three new Plant-in City special edition terrarium pieces created in the spirit of the Lowline. The terrariums are made from oak trees sourced locally from upstate NY. Simple japanese joinery frame the volume, and a wired web of black steel, aluminum and fiber optic cables create an air scape for air plants to inhabit. Each terrarium is charred all-black, through a process called Shou Sugi Ban that preserves the wood, making it more resistant to wind, water, sun, fire, and insect damage. With a little water, sun, and love - these guys will always be by your side!
Channeling the spirit of the Lowline Park, this special Terrarium is embedded with LED lights that illuminate a sculptural web of black steel, aluminum wire and fiber optic cable. A timeless art piece that join technolgy craft and nature. Portion of proceeds go to the Lowline Lab in Lower Manhattan.
Thank you for considering and supporting the fabulous project!
