Pentagram partners Domenic Lippa and Sascha Lobe have been selected as a part of the team to design London’s Camden Highline, following a two-stage international competition.
The Camden Highline will connect Camden Gardens in the west to York Way in the east, transforming a 1.2km-long disused stretch of railway viaduct into a new elevated park and walking route with seating areas, cafés, arts interventions and community spaces.
Pentagram will work on the graphic design and signage elements, alongside a team of architects and designers including design lead Field Operations and renowned garden designer Piet Oudolf. Oudolf and Field Operations previously collaborated with Pentagram partner Paula Scher on the High Line in New York, launched in 2014 and now one of the city’s most visited attractions.
Set to open in 2024, the Camden Highline is designed to build community pride and sense of place, providing the area of North London with much-needed greenery and opportunities for cultural programming.
