Times Square is an exceptionally stimulating and chaotic section of New York. Our design intent is to complement the vitality of Times Square while simultaneously creating a work that can stand alone on its own merits. The design beings simply with a slanted grid angled to each street, creating rows of triangles. These rows then oscillate in scale from one end of Times Square to the other, north to south. Using the four color constraint to our advantage, we assign each triangle to be one of two colors (yellow or red, blue or purple). Through an interplay of colors and scales, these simple grids and rules are transformed into a dynamic tapestry weaving in and out of itself and pouring through the street, a microcosm of the dynamism and variety found within Manhattan's grid layout and in Times Square in particular.The simplest and most fundamental of geometric forms, the triangle, takes its lead from the Broadway’s street angle. It multiplies and transforms as it travels along the bowtie, altering scales to playfully reflect the intensity of pedestrian foot traffic it supports. The small scale at the street intersections reflects the fast-paced foot-traffic, and grows in the areas with slow steady movement takes place in the central areas of the blocks. The colors similarly mimic the surrounding colorful spirit of the bowtie, alternating as the journey along Broadway proceeds. In areas where street conditions are encountered, the colors reverse to add another layer of playful complexity.
