High Line Update: 30th Street Cut-out

I just got my latest email from the High Line folks, and there were some photos of what's happening in Section 2. It looks very exciting. Above is a photo of a construction worker cutting through the concrete for the 30th Street Cut-out. Below is a rendering of what its going to look like. Here's what the High Line folks have to say about it:

Construction on the second section of the park, from 20th Street to 30th Street, is progressing on schedule, with planting set to begin this summer...The removal of the concrete [in the 30th Street Cut-out] will expose the High Line's steel framework, while an elevated viewing platform will bring visitors in close contact with the steel beams. Design by James Corner Field Operations and Diller Scofidio + Renfro.

Stempel Form

I like these guys. I came across them while browsing job listings on Archinect. (And no, I'm not dropping out of school, just curious what sorts of jobs are out there these days...)

Stempel Form is a three branch architecture firm involved in a whole range of projects - in addition to architecture - such as public installation, product design, sculpture, ceramics, community development. Their third branch specifically is a non-profit dedicated to assisting communities in creating sustainable growth patterns, as well as educational and public outreach opportunities.
