Gehry Recasts Brooklyn Skyline, Adds Iconic Swamp

Black is white, night is day, dogs lie down with cats, and starchitect Frank Gehry hugs a member of Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn? Believe it. Via Brownstoner (is it just us, or has he been writing a lot about Brooklyn lately?), a report in Brooklyn Papers says Gehry has agreed to tone down his iconic vision for a new Brooklyn skyline above the Nets Stadium-to-be, reducing the iconic titanium on the towers with "warmer brick." (The stadium itself remains as blingtastic as ever.) The redesign for the $3.5-billion project is also said to feature a "marsh-like pond." Renderings, please; this we gotta see.
