    New York is a Friendly Town

    This project—a civic center located at One Times Square—uses design to alleviate the negative feelings that stem from being one of eight million in the city of New York. A community center, this space exists as a sanctuary of emotional expression in a city where a single voice is often drowned out by the crowd. The upward progression of the morphing spheres represents a desired emotional metamorphosis for visitors from homogeneous, mass-produced people into celebrated and understood individuals. As they progress, they group together to form a community based on a mutual understanding and appreciation of one another.
