Last Thursday, AN hosted the kick-off event for Meatpacking District Design ’09, a conversation between executive editor Julie V. Iovine and hotelier André Balazs at his latest creation, the Polshek Partnership-designed Standard, New York (which Julie wrote about back in February). If you couldn’t make it, though, no sweat. For your vicarious pleasure, we’ve posted a highlight video, plus the full talk, both in video and audio formats–here at AN we’re platform agnostic–plus a slew of photos of the party, the swanky new digs, and the now-in-bloom High Line.

Approaching full-bloom

Easily the coolest effect, witnessed here after the talk, was these amazing lights that lit up a single row of flowers. As they blew in the wind, it was at once eerie and breathtaking.

The lobby comes complete with one of those iconic Erwin Hauer light-diffusing walls. And diffuse it does.
