AY down the memory hole: two reports that SHoP is the designer of the Barclays Center

From the New York Daily News, 7/15/11, East River Waterfront Esplanade opens in style:
[City Planning Commission Chairperson Amanda] Burden selected a plan from SHoP Architects, the New York-based studio known as the architects of the Barclays arena in Brooklyn.
From SportsPro Magazine, The Next Generation, July 2011:
Few would disagree with such an appraisal of the forthcoming Barclays Center, future home of the Brooklyn Nets. Its designers at the award-winning SHoP architecture firm have presented what might be the most ambitious and aesthetically pleasing indoor arena ever constructed in the United States.

As No Land Grab's Eric McClure pointed out, "Uh, didn't Ellerbe Becket design the inside of the arena?"
