Underground green park made possible by Lowline Labs

theface_lowline

Lowline is an experimental initiative in New York City that intends to establish the world’s first ever underground green park. Planned in a 3-block-long subterranean space, a former and now abandoned trolley terminal in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the park is still under construction. Or, to put more precisely, under prototyping; before actually coming to effect, the technological-experimental branch of the project, the Lowline Labs is testing some of their innovations to see whether the idea of an all-year-long, four-seasons park is valid and possible to execute.

The biggest question of the enterprise is of course the involvement of sunlight, that is essential for plants to survive. Project-leader Raad Studio and Korean tech-company Sunportal designed an optical, solar-based system as a solution, that is now installed and open for the public in the Laboratory’s ground. Just a few blocks away from the proposed location of Lowline, the prototype device was set up in an abandoned market hall of Essex Street Market that mimics the environment of the future Lowline park.

Based on the “reuse skylight” technology, the system has an overground solar collection dish, continuing in a helio tube transmitting and an underground dome reflecting the vital sunlight. The scheme seems to be working, which is a real breakthrough in solar technology, opening new routes in reclaiming disused urban spaces.
