Times Canyon. Anti-Times Square experience


Times Canyon is an alternative way to view Times Square in which fixed viewfinders are proposed to be installed in Times Square which reveal Times Square as Times Canyon: Times Square transformed in the colors of the Grand Canyon. Decontextualization fuels Times Canyon: at heart the project tries to superimpose the Grand Canyon onto Times Square. Both the idea of an overlook as well as the form proposed come from the Grand Canyon Skywalk; the colors of Times Canyon also come directly from the Grand Canyon geological strata.

Times Canyon is a big project with its own website and I've also written more about it here and here
