Barclays Center Rendering Near Identical to Existing Arena
by Bilal Khan
So it looks like the "renderings" of the Barclays Center at Atlantic Yards that we showed you earlier this week might have something slightly sinister going on with them, at least according to some Atlantic Yards foes. The folks at No Land Grab astutely pointed out that the interior shot of the arena looks practically identical to the Consesco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. Is something fishy or is this just nitpicking? In any case, the developers just gave opponents a lot more ammo in their tireless crusade to malign everything-Atlantic Yards.
NoLandGrab: Nitpicking? World-class Frank Gehry-designed arena or Indianapolis-class Ellerbe Becket-designed arena you decide!
