Organized by the Times Square Alliance in partnership with&nbsp;The Architectural League of New York, the annual competition invites architects and designers to send proposals for a Valentine's Day-themed public art installation in NYC's Times Square.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/d5/d5pwmpco9a10d5ix.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/u7/u7m5rssxq48rqfwh.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/jk/jkiqj3hmu0ahtz6j.jpg"></p><p>Even if Valentine's Day isn't everyone's kind of thing, the Heartbeat installation spreads the universal love for music. The installation is a heart-shaped beating drum that glows to the rhythm of a strong, deep, and low-frequency heartbeat sound that changes its rate as passersby approach, move around, or play its various percussion instruments and join the base rhythm of the installation's "pulse". In a location like Times Square, Heartbeat continuously orchestrates the sounds of its active environment into an "urban concert" of its own kind.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/gg/ggnttnx8ah168ga3.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/v2/v2io908uqigjavbx.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/tg/tgoklcc0k2bae22y.jpg"></p><p>Hear...</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/93312930/winning-sculpture-of-2014-times-square-heart-design-unveiled Winning sculpture of 2014 Times Square Heart Design unveiled Justine Testado 2014-02-10T17:39:00-05:00 >2014-02-11T14:32:05-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/ps/psbc9fzkldqmbwx4.jpg" width="514" height="367" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>How about we start the week with a heart-warming project right on time for Valentine's Day!
