High Line for Hyde Park

Uniting Hyde Park and Green Park

A High Line for Hyde Park proposes a new linear park to bridge the gap between Hyde Park and Green Park, allowing people to wander seamlessly between the two.

The scheme aims to integrate growing elements with manmade structures. This is inspired by, on the one hand, the dynamic patterns of light and shade you experience walking along a tree-lined street, and on the other, by paintings from Turner, Lorrain and Poussin, whose pastoral landscapes portrayed a harmonious integration of greenery, city and architecture. 

The chosen site is a highly prominent and historic site, and care has been taken to avoid interrupting key vistas from Constitution Hill.

Beneath the multileveled gyratory, access to Hyde Park Corner is via a network of subterranean pedestrian passageways. The High Line would create new access points to the station and liberate people from walking in these often dark and unsafe underground passageways.
