A few weeks ago, we requested feedback on three litter receptacle prototypes for the park, designed and developed by Bryant Park Corporation’s Director of Design, Ignacio Ciocchini. The response in the polls and comments section of the post has been incredible. To those who have voiced an opinion, thank you! If you haven’t yet, there is still time to vote for your favorite receptacle design and color.
The polls will close at midnight on Friday, January 15. Visit the park this week to view the prototypes in person, then share your opinion of the most suitable receptacle for Bryant Park here on the blog.
Location Update: Because we will create close to 100 litter receptacles of the chosen design and color, it is important for us to see how the prototypes look in various locations throughout the park. The litter receptacle prototypes are now located near the entrance to the park at the corner of 42nd Street and 6th Avenue, across from the Ping Pong Area. Originally placed on the Fountain Terrace against a bluestone backdrop, this new location allows the receptacles to be seen against one of the park’s many green ivy beds (see photo sets below).
If seeing the receptacles against a different backdrop affects your thoughts on the color and design choice for the final receptacle, you can vote again or leave a comment explaining your change in opinion.
