New Nets Arena Plans Taking (a Different) Shape

Bruce Ratner's architecture team laid out a new vision of the Nets' Brooklyn arena Tuesday night. Frank Gehry, Ratner's primary architect, showed drawings of a bowtie-shaped arena very different from any other. The half- billion dollar arena will have a wildflower meadow and boardwalk on its roof, include the ability to project images over the entire arena floor or ceiling and to stripe adjacent streets with Net team colors.
