The “Times Square Electronic Garden” project is meant to initiate a conversation about climate change, energy use and green urban spaces.
Designed and fabricated by New York University students, this earth bomb features speakers and live sensors among the plants that
connect to our URL. The idea is to “re-nature” Times Square so that the public can contemplate new natures within our cities. We invite
people to explore soothing living vegetative surfaces and recognize the stark contrast of their hyper-electrified surroundings. The students
have designed and built an open central sphere for visitors to circulate through so that they may encounter a microcosm of hanging gardens.
Around the sphere there will be a greenscape of serpentine living benches for rest, gathering, and contemplation. The whole project, start-to-
finish, will be erected and removed in a 24 hour period. It will be a place to reimagine Times Square’s consumer culture into a truly
sumptuous environmental future.
