The grid of the city, its organization made of the little squares and rectangles, which form the basic material of its streets and buildings, have annihilated the city dweller’s ability to broaden his views, to embrace the world he lives in as a whole and thus has reduced not only his physical living space, but his emotional realm as well and has narrowed even his mind. In this specific context, this project aims to help the city dweller to rediscover his lost abilities, emotions, senses by designing within Times Square New York City, a new and permanent set of spaces, both outdoor or indoor, which will reengage his emotions and senses in an effort to challenge the alienation of the city.
