Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park graphic: what's built/what's coming + FAQ (pinned post)

Oh, so the second community information session is a continuing education opportunity for architects

Brutally weird.

The long-delayed second community information session, to be held in conjunction with Forest City Ratner and the Center for Architecture, will be "focused on the new arena design," the ESDC said in a press release yesterday.

Now, it sure looks like the ESDC is piggybacking on some other professional opportunity. (Yes, you should RSVP.)

From the Center for Architecture:
A Conversation With the Architects of the Barclays Center
CES: 1 LU, 1 HSW
When: 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14

Where: Brooklyn Borough Hall, Courtroom, 2nd floor

The Empire State Development Corporation hosts a discussion on the new designs for the Barclays Center with building architects, Bill Crockett, Director of Sports Architecture at Ellerbe Beckett and Gregg Pasquarelli, Founding Partner of SHoP

The Center for Architecture will moderate a discussion on the recently unveiled designs for the Barclays Center in downtown Brooklyn. The arena, being developed as part of the Atlantic Yards Development project, is scheduled to break ground by the end of the year. The architects will talk about their collaboration, the foundations for their design and their vision for this landmark building.

Images of the new design and model will be available for public viewing at Brooklyn Borough Hall from 10:00 am on September 14th through 5:30 pm Friday, September 18th. (Hours: Monday, 9/14: 10 am – 6:00 pm; Tuesday, 9/15: 8:30 am – 5:30 pm; Wednesday, 9/16: 8:30 am – 8 pm; Friday, 9/18: 8:30 am – 5:30 pm)

This raises a question: for what profession could the first community information session have served as a continuing education opportunity? Crisis management?
