The Barclays Centre, which is located in one of New Yorks metro areas is a great example of how a form works well with a busy urban street. The building still manages to hold its purpose and keep its visitors and neighbours happy.
The main public areas of the building are glazed at ground level to invite its visitors into the building. Including a welcoming green roofed entrance to the subway.
SHoP did do an alteration to the design to make the entrance of the main building more accessible to the passers by. They also made the space more useful for the community and even designed it so it could be used as a farmers market.
The building is planned to be opened in 2012 and planned to cost around $800.
