Another Architecture Critic Slams Ratner Over Loss of Gehry

Justin Davidson, writing in New York Magazine, slams Bruce Ratner for firing architect Frank Gehry, calling the new design for Barclays Center "a graceless Cow Palace knockoff by the journeyman stadium-builder Ellerbe Becket...insultingly bad".
