Danish practice teams up with Zumtobel for Times Square sculpture

Big has designed a glowing heart for New York City’s Times Square to celebrate Valentine’s day.

The sculpture consists of 400 transparent LED lit, acrylic tubes, which appear to pulsate as they sway in the wind.

When people touch a heart-shaped sensor nearby the energy from their hands will make the heart glow brighter and beat faster.

Bjarke Ingels, founder of Big, said: “The heart reflects what Times Square is made of: people and light – the more people, the stronger the light.”

The heart will be on display until February 29.
