The Lowline aims to build the world’s first underground park using innovative technology to bring sunlight underground. As part of the vision, “remote skylights” would concentrate natural sunlight at street level, and then channel it underground, generating enough light to support photosynthesis. The core of the “Imagining the Lowline” exhibit will feature the installation of a solar collector, a canopy distributor, and a small-scale green park, to help the community envision the technology and its stunning aesthetic elements.
Together with additional information on the Lowline project and the community it will serve, “Imagining the Lowline” will engage visitors in a visually stimulating potential future. We hope it will continue a growing global discussion on the future of new public spaces– and the unclaimed value of our urban underground.
