An ambitious plan to redesign Georgetown’s C & O Canal is taking shape with the design firm behind New York City’s High Line Park taking the lead. The canal has not been used for transport since 1924 and its beloved boat fell into disrepair when the Park Service removed it last year to begin restoration. We explore how designers are re-imagining the area by looking at other efforts in the region to re-engage and re-purpose aging infrastructure for public use.
