Organized by Center for ArchitectureTimes Square Arts

AIA New York is proud to be partnering with Times Square Arts on this year’s Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition. For the first time ever, the proposals for the Valentines Heart Design Competition will be exhibited at the Center for Architecture. At this opening event, finalists will present their proposed installations and the winning entry will be announced! All eight project proposals will remain on display through November 2, 2018, at the Center for Architecture.

This year’s competition invites firms to contemplate how a Valentine sent from the heart of Times Square might embrace various expressions of love, both individual and collective. Can the public art installation generate connections and ignite conversations that articulate our aspirations as individuals, as a city, as a nation, and beyond? How do you illustrate and amplify love in Times Square, where every day, 350,000 pedestrians from New York City, across the country, and around the world cross paths with strangers from all walks of life?

Each year, the competition invites New York City-based architects and designers to design an icon that communicates and celebrates love in the heart of this dynamic city. Eight talented firms have been selected to participate:

– Agency Agency / Tei Carpenter

– Buro Koray Duman

– Isometric Studio

– N H D M / Nahyun Hwang and David Eugin Moon

– Only If Architecture

– Splice Design

– STUDIO 397

– REDDYMADE
