Design Proposal

Free Speech is possible only in free space.
The most free space is the sky, Sky where the birds fly..
New York is the city that people feel themselves in dreams, a magical place that you feel in the clouds.
But unfortunately ,in this city, People can not see the sky because of skyscrapers.
Let’s get the sky to the ground,to the ground ,under the feet of people.
How is that?
Time Square is the heart of New York City.
By ridding the area from vehicle traffic, We give the whole area to pedestrians and get the sky to the ground.
Now , In this field, people feel themselves above the clouds, A space in which to express themselves free!
