Barclays Center Tour

This past Saturday morning, we were invited to a tour of the under-construction Barclays Center by our friend Asmita who works for Shop Architects. It was super impressive to see the thousands of weathered steel panels that they designed to cover the facade of the building with and discuss how they were made, assembled and installed.

Most importantly, I got to see the floor with the ice rink in place.  Unfortunately they didn't work out the seats situation for an ideal layout when the Islanders move to the city and become the Brooklyn Warriors full-time, but they'll make it work....

Oh and the views from the roof outside and the catwalk inside were breath taking.  Enjoy.
