Robert Hammond is former Executive Director of Friends of the High Line, a nonprofit he co-founded with Joshua David in 1999. Since opening in 2009, the High Line has become one of the New York City’s most popular destinations, welcoming more than 4.5 million visitors per year. Before the High Line, Hammond helped launch several startup businesses and worked as a consultant for a variety of organizations. His accolades include the Rome Prize by the American Academy in Rome (2010); an honorary doctorate from the New School (2012); and, jointly with David, the Rockefeller Foundation’s Jane Jacobs Medal (2010) and the Vincent Scully Prize (2013). He was a featured speaker at TED (2010).
