Here are a few photos of the winners from past years-
the 2012 winning design by BIG (Bjarke Ingles Group)
A BIG red heart pulses with glowing light in a grove of glass rods. A single person can activate the beating heart but joining hands with others will make the heart beat even faster to create a brighter burning heart.
The 10-foot tall glowing sculpture consists of 400 transparent, LED lit, acrylic tubes that form a cube around a suspended heart. The hovering heart pulsates faster reflecting the vibrant human energy in the heart of Times Square.
