Best Public SpaceTKTS Booth

12 of 18

New York City. Designed by Perkins Eastman; concept by Choi Ropiha

In the heart of Times Square, amid the thronging crowds, neon lights, urgent billboards, and animated video screens—the cacophony of capitalism—the TKTS Booth has become a remarkable pedestrian destination, a small island of relative calm. Glowing red steps form the roof of the discount Broadway ticket outlet, an elevated grandstand from which to watch the world go by.

From the Jury:

“The TKTS booth invents public space where there was none before.” —Michael Bierut
