Atlantic Yards

As promised here is the website my friend sent me:

This particular one is an architecture review. For more explanation see below. My friends opinion of this new design is "it looks like a dilapidated pile of pancakes"

This is the mid design architecture review:

There was an interesting looking video with Gehry and Olin (the landscape architect of the plan) speaking about the design but I could not get it to load on my comp.

all for now
