Ratner to Focus on Arena in First Stage of Construction

Buried in a lengthy profile of Laurie Olin, the site designer and landscape architect for the Atlantic Yards project talks about how the Nets' new arena is his primary focus. Olin, who has redesigned and designed a number of New York landmarks, says the arena must be ready for the first game of the 2009-10 season and that the surrounding skyscrapers are secondary. Olin also talks about his innovative plans for the arena's roof...it will be a park.
