SWBOCES Architecture students find inspiration in the big city
High Line offers big city views, bigger inspiration
Taking time out of the classroom, students in Christine Ireland’s Architecture and Interior Design/3D Art classes ventured into the big city to take a closer look at urban architecture and to be inspired.
On Oct. 25, a group of 15 students took a field trip to New York City’s High Line, an elevated public park that once was a freight rail line along Manhattan’s West Side. Visitors can traverse the 1.4 mile walkway, which incorporates gardens, benches and historical information about surrounding neighborhoods. The park also offers unique views of the area.
On this day the students had a purpose.
“We went to the High Line because one of the architects that works in our class thought it would be a great way for students to experience New York City architecture,” Ms. Ireland said.
Each student was assigned the task of taking six photos that inspired them. These images will be a part of a Photoshop Project.
“This brings in many concepts in our curriculum together in one assignment,” Ms. Ireland said.
