AIA New York is proud to be partnering with Times Square Arts on this year’s Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition. For the first time ever, the proposals for the Valentines Heart Design Competition will be exhibited at the Center for Architecture. At this opening event, finalists will present their proposed installations and the winning entry will be announced! All eight project proposals will remain on display through November 2, 2018, at the Center for Architecture.

Each year, the competition invites New York City-based architects and designers to design an icon that communicates and celebrates love in the heart of this dynamic city. Eight talented firms have been selected to participate:
