The Line是一个临时装置，位于北加利福尼亚郊区，由REgroup建筑事务所设计，供乐器演奏、婚礼等小型活动使用，为当地带来了一种新型的郊外活动空间。由于项目的预算不到五千美元，因此建筑师仅进行了最低程度的设计。事务所主创Julia Lewis解释道：“设计的挑战在于如何去除所有不必要的成分，创造一个具有很强存在感的构件。最后的成果呈现出壮观而通用的特质。”
The Line is a temporary structure designed by REgroup architecture in rural, Northern California. The structure, which was designed for small events, from musical performances to weddings, offers a new type of rural event space for the area. The minimal design is a direct result from working with a ‘micro-budget’ of less than $5,000. “The design offered an interesting challenge to design something that had a strong presence while removing all unnecessary components. It creates a kind of spectacular ‘generic’ quality” said Gary and Julia Lewis principals of REgroup.

The overall footprint of the structure is only 300sf, and is 75’ in length. The structure is made entirely of wood and is “essentially a 75’ long piece of precision woodworking”. A waterproof coating was used to protect the structure from weather.

Because The Line floats on pier footings, it has an ultra low footprint on the land it sits on; and when the projects life runs its course, it will return the landscape with little impact. All of the materials for the project were sourced from within 400 miles of the site that help to further reduce its environmental impact.

According to REgroup architecture “It has created a new local micro economy, offering a venue for small events and performances for the local and regional community.”
