The new TKTS

The Times has a neat web-graphic feature on the new space-age TKTS complex in Duffy Square.

My question is, I still don't get what the stairs are for! Is the line really going to wrap around...and up???

Actually, I think the point of the stairs is pretty clear. There aren't a lot of places to sit around there. It's for tourists to sit for a few minutes and look at all the lights.

It's a typical postmodern move in architecture, because they will become an "audience" that the rest of us, walking down the sidewalk (suddenly construed as "performers") will gawk at, wondering, I suppose, who is performing for whom.
