"reNEWable Times Square" Yarışması için son başvuru tarihi 16 Nisan 2011.
Times Square, one of New York City’s (the “City”) most vibrant destinations, attracts over 350,000 pedestrians each day, more than anywhere else in the City. The area is home to 39 Broadway theatres, 35 hotels (accommodating 25% of Manhattan’s hotel rooms), 250,000 employees, various cultural and commercial events, public broadcasts and film shoots, and the New Year’s Eve Celebration. The streets of Times Square are filled with people 24/7 gazing up at the bright lights and billboards as well as constantly changing images projected from LCD screens. Visitors are also attracted to the area’s retail offerings including several flagship stores for national chains, destination restaurants, and of course, Broadway shows.
The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City (the “Mayor’s Fund”) hereby invites eligible artists, designers, organizations, and non-profits living or operating within the City (the “Artist(s)”) to propose temporary design solutions to renew the surface treatments at all five plazas and smaller ancillary spaces located on Broadway from 47th to 42nd streets for installation beginning in June 2010. The final design shall be translated into a surface treatment by a contractor selected by the New York City Department of Transportation (the “DOT”) with ongoing support from the selected Artist(s).
