Nets Arena Brooklyn

June 10, 2009

I disagree with the NYTimes take on the new design of the Nets Basketball Arena. The restraints of the new economy has forced Brooklyn to scale down their dreams and I think the possible design is more beautiful then what they had previously conceptualized. While I like the idea of a rooftop park and the integration with the street and community form, I think design and community should develope organically and if they trully wanted they could set code for future development, but to ask for the taxpayers to throw in the kitchen sink is poor archetecture. Gehry’s design was just too grandiose
