Michael Kubo MArch ’06, Jonathan Lott MArch ’05, and Colleagues at Collective- LOK win Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition
Michael Kubo MArch ’06, Harvard Graduate School of Design design critic in architecture Jonathan Lott MArch ’05, and colleagues at Collective–LOK will be adding an element of intimacy and intrigue to New York’s Times Square this Valentine’s Day. Over the past eight years, the Times Square Alliance has held an annual Times Square Valentine Heart Design competition, curated by The Center for Architecture. The competition invites architecture and design firms to submit proposals for a “romantic public art installation” in Times Square, hooked to Valentine’s Day. Collective–LOK was named this year’s winner with Heart of Hearts, which presents a ringed arrangement of nine golden, mirrored, heart-shaped panels, each 10 feet in height. Heart of Hearts will be revealed on February 9 and remain on view through March 6 at Father Duffy Square, between 46th and 47th Streets.
