While the components of cultural and historical identity exist, the community of West Chelsea lacks a developed visual architectural expression. Gentrification speculates on this visual absence, with the Highline being the most prominent rendition. The elevated railroad infrastructure that was used as a form of transportation of goods within the meat packing districts. Now, it has evolved into a living thread of botanical gardens in West Chelsea. With the Highline, a visual language can be abstracted and translated into an architectural tectonics + a strategy for the organization of space.
