My Design Brings All The Boys To The 'Yard'

Ellerbe Becket and Shop Architects have joined forces to develop a design for a basketball arena that will potentially reside in Brooklyn (should it earn city approval). Known as the "Atlantic Yards" project, the arena is not only visually striking, but also possesses some practical features that will appeal to the general public. The structure itself is exteriorly woven out of weathered-steel panels which create openings on the surface; permitting light to radiate through. The openings are also oriented at sidewalk level so pedestrians have the ability to peek through and spectate on events that are occurring within.
