Ratner Releases New Design for Nets' Arena, Atlantic Yards

New, comments

Frank Gehry, who is designing the Nets' new arena within Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards, is known as a radical architect. His best work casts aside traditional shapes and goes for the shock of the new. His latest designs for the Brooklyn project is at the far end of that spectrum. The signature building, once called Miss Brooklyn, now looks a bit like a twisted Lego Land and the Nets' arena a small, blue-tinted mountain. Critics have released their own drawings--of what things would like if only the arena is built.
