Zaha Hadid's High Line Installation Unveiled in New York

Zaha Hadid designed the new sculptural installation on the High Line entitled “Allongé.” Located in the heart of Manhattan’s cultural district in West Chelsea, the amazing design of the temporary construction shelter embodies Zaha Hadid’s known organic design aesthetics while serving as a mandatory protective cover for the High Line, and foreshadows the fluid forms of her dramatic new sculptural building, 520 West 28th, which is now under construction, with occupancy anticipated in 2016.
