RECONSTRUCTED SEAM : SITE ANALYSIS AND STUDIES Site: LITTLE WEST 12TH STREET & WASHINTON AVENUE 1 This site study focused on how the Highline is a seam between history and the contemporary. We discovered a CONTRADICTION on site with old, limited access, commercially oriented, passive spaces, (mostly meat packing plants) and open publicly oriented, specifically interactive, market-targeted luxurious and upperclass spaces, part of the redevelopment.
