Barclays CenterEdit profile
The design of the Barclays Center achieves a striking balance between iconic form and performative engagement with the street. It is legible at multiple scales while maintaining an identity that delights visitors, neighbors, fans, and spectators. Integrated into one of the busiest urban intersections in the New York metro area, the Center will sustain a healthy, interactive dialogue with the surrounding streets and neighborhood. The Main Public Concourse is predominately glazed at the sidewalk level to ensure optimum accessibility and visibility. The civic gesture of the arena is heightened by a spectacular 30’ high canopy which contains an oculus that frames the view of the arena. The Main Public Entrance plaza links Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues and creates a flexible, welcoming yet grand civic space. Views and physical access both into and out of the arena will be plentiful, easy and accommodating, thus ensuring a strong connection to the surrounding urban environment.
