Connecting Times Square
Responsive Street Furniture
Designed in response to an invitation by the Times Square Alliance, the modular seating system proposes a strategy for place-making that is adaptable, resilient, and allows the self-assembly of social spaces unique to the vibrant environment of Times Square. Nearly 364,000 people visit Times Square daily, and the plazas host a variety of programs and events that are constantly changing.
Composed of post-consumer recycled plastic, these sustainable and multifunctional pieces create a variable landscape within the open spaces of the Times Square pedestrian plazas, specifically in the area known as “the Bowtie”
