Who would have ever thought that there would be a dense underground forest in Manhattan? For a little more than two years The Lowline Lab project was on display in New York City’s Lower East Side. A few months ago my friend and I visited the lab and I’m counting down the days to 2021 when the project becomes a reality.
You step off a bustling city street and are transported to another world. Thanks to solar technology an urban jungle is growing without the help of any natural light. The lab is now closed, it served as a trial run to see if the technology they built could grow plants underground. The project was a success and The Lowline will be built in a historic trolley terminal on Delancey Street. For more information on the project visit The Lowline.
