DUMBO Designers take on Times Square.
DUMBO design firm, Situ Studio, has won the Times Square Valentine Heart Design contest with their heart-shaped, red-illuminated boardwalk made out of salvaged post-Sandy boardwalk from Long Beach, Atlantic City and Sea Girt.
“We were interested in creating a room within the city—a public space that was simultaneously interior and exterior. Taking inspiration from the collective experience of Sandy, Heartwalk is a reflection on the things that bind us together, ephemeral and permanent,” said Bradley Samuels, a partner at Situ Studios.
Just in time for Valentines Day – the installation will be revealed on Tuesday, February 12 and will be up until March 8.
