The Barclays Center is more than a $4.9 billion sports arena; it’s the crown jewel of a resurgent Brooklyn that now rivals Manhattan as a cultural center. The entire complex features distinctive touches. The grand lobby is punctuated with mirrored translucent cylinders over frosted acrylic and open style T-5 lamping. The celebrity clientele at the VIP Club are lit by suspended aluminum cylinder downlights raked at a dramatic angle. The ceiling of the 40/40 Club adds sharp geometry with triangles of dimming fluorescents, echoing a baseball diamond. The club gets its name from the baseball term describing the exclusive group of Major League Baseball players who‘ve achieved the rare individual feat of notching 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases in a single season.
