Times Square Valentine

Location: Times Square, New York
Client: Urban Design Forum and Times Square Alliance
Collaborator: Andrew Heumann
Scope: Invited Competition
Progress/Year: 2017

This proposal, an invited finalist for the Times Square Valentine project, invokes the ghosts of Times Square, echoing the sixties and seventies in which shadowy movie theaters allowed for romantic encounters in an era of necessary anonymity. Built in a scaffolding system, the intervention is a metaphor for New York under construction: the city as a changing infrastructure for love in all its complexity.
