Which major similarities and differences could you identify in those two case studies?
Synthesis and Outlook
There are differences between Buffalo Bayou and Highline project, that have to do mainly with the nature of both cities while Highline was an area in the city, Buffalo Bayou was a natural area but it was neglected.But there are important similarities, such as the both projects restructure the use of areas for the people. The idea of just pedestrian areas is not new but in both cases they are used at the maximum, promoting the use of areas exclusively for people.
Both of the case studies show how an area can be re-used for better, the implementation of the selected projects shows how an abandoned area is possible, there is a difference of scale and a different landscape in both projects,in the case of Bayou, the most idea is that of a nature area that was already there can be used in the benefit of the population, in the case of Highline is the city which opens allows to a project like that be successful.
These different projects are examples of how in the future landscapes in cities can evolve.This project is a good example for how to create multi-purpose, useful places with interdisciplinary work.
