Images of
Architecture
and the
Built Environment

The other day David Sundberg was in Times Square and photographed the B I G heart.

This public art project by BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group, commissioned by the Times Square Alliance, is described on the B I G – Bjarke Ingels Group site:

A BIG red heart pulses with glowing light in a grove of glass rods.  A single person can activate the beating heart, but joining hands with others will make the heart beat even faster to create a brightly burning heart.  The heart conducts the flow of people, air and touch to bring its heart to life.  The 10-foot-tall glowing sculpture consists of 400 transparent, LED lit, acrylic tubes that form a cube around a suspended red heart.  The transparent tubes refract the lights of Times Square, creating a cluster of condenses city lights around the heart.  The hovering heart will pulsate faster reflecting the chain of human energy in the heart of Times Square.

David’s images were tweeted by Bjarke Ingels and also appear on their site.  The B I G heart images are also in a CBS news story.
