New York - shortlisted
This project made Piet Oudolf famous across the world. He was first called by James Corner’s office in 2005, because they were already on the shortlist to redevelop the site. “I went online and looked at the Joel Sternfeld pictures of the site, I though it looked interesting, but I had no idea what it would become. James created a narrative; a script of what visitors would experience walking over that track: people go into a woodland area, that opens up into a meadow or grassland. This is only one example of the experience. For instance there are the Chelsea Grasslands, The Thicket, The Flyover also. I translated that into the planting.”
