A semi-finalist submittal for the annual Times Square Valentine 2013 competition. By invitation through the Design Trust for Public Spaces and the Times Square Alliance. Our proposal was all about LOVE and the things that make you smile. It is about the moment to see and be seen.

MANIFOLD.ArchitectureStudio | HAPPY HEARTS NYCAs a visitor to Happy Hearts NYC, you can slide together with a friend, a loved one, or a family member and take a short accelerated trip through a heart in  Times Square. It is not just a pretty object, it’s a spatial instance. It’s a  heart shaped double slide to happiness  because it brings a smile to your face.

And best of all it is a  sliding tunnel of love and happiness.
