I December mÃ¥ned bad New York Magazine 3 arkitekter, BIG, West 8 og Field Operations,Â om hver isÃ¦r, at skabe visonÃ¦re ideer til hvordan Times Square kunne bruges i fremtiden.
BIG: “The vehicular flows in Times Square currently divide the public realm into islands. We propose merging the two embankments of Seventh Avenue by lifting the pavement like on a Venetian bridge over a canal of cars. The bridge will be paved with translucent tiles embedded with LED lights powered by harvesting the force of peopleâ€™s footsteps to generate electricity. This colorful spectacle will be a monument to pedestrian power, and will turn Times Square into a giant, urban disco.!!”
