Re Arena Design: The new arena design has too many sharp, hard edges and the structure appears standoffish to the surrounding urban ecosystem. I expected a more feminine structure with curved lines and a more organic feel.
Recent Olympic venues are good examples of this style. A Google image search will provide many examples. In our capital city, there are enough hard edges and straight lines--literally and figuratively. Those of us who are not sports fans will need a more inspiring and imaginative design to get on board with this project. Art can add immense value to a community, but this design falls short.
