Times Square has an unlikely new inhabitant thanks to Brooklyn artist Fernando Mastrangelo, who’s installed a tiny home at the tourist hotspot.
The house measures just 175 sq ft but has its own entrance path surrounded by plants. Mastrangelo used reclaimed plastic and glass to build the cabin, which is intended to show the ways architecture can create less waste.
It’s been created as part of NYCxDESIGN and is open for the public to visit. No one will be moving into Times Square anytime soon, but passersby can take a break from the crowds in the house’s indoor garden, which is framed by a bright blue wall.
