Designers of the planned $900 million Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., are working to win over residents with a design that evokes a public plaza. "It could be a green market, it could be movie night, it could be a flea market, it could be art installations, it could be fashion shows," said architect Gregg Pasquarelli. The plaza was originally going to house a subway entrance and office space, but the offices have been scrapped given weak demand.
