The Lowline: An introduction to New York’s newest and most innovative park with James Ramsey

The Lowline is a plan to use innovative solar technology to illuminate the one-acre former Williamsburg Bridge Trolley Terminal, just below Delancey Street. The result will be a stunning underground park, providing a beautiful respite and a cultural attraction in one of the world’s most dense, exciting urban environments. The site was opened in 1908 for trolley passengers, but has been unused since 1948.

James Ramsey, Co-Founder and Creator, is the inventor of the remote skylight, which delivers sunlight below ground using a system of optics. In 2004, Ramsey opened design practice RAAD, and they have since built over a hundred projects, both in NYC and across the country.
