BIG Heart


This year's is created by the Danish architecture firm BIG (Bjarke Ingles Group),  Valentine's installation, located in the city of New York Duffy Square, 46th Street and Broadway.


'BIG(heart)NYC' is a 10-foot tall cube-like structure composed of 400 transparent LED acrylic tubes enveloping a large red heart that is suspended within. the cylindrical components refract the surrounding bright lights of times square around the symbol of love. 


The interactive art piece pulses with a glowing red luminosity whereby, people's interaction with one another intensify 
the beating of the brightly, burning heart. the large-scale work blends well with duffy square's TKTS booth by perkins eastman,
whose ascending red stairs, provide a visual harmony, while also offering a place for passersby to sit and reflect.
BIG's installation is the fourth edition of the valentine's day 'heart sculpture' project hosted by the times square alliance.
