And the Prospect Park Skating Rink Architect Is...

In case you're one of those readers that can't stand a mystery, one of our GL readers has solved one for us, via Google. It turns out that the architects of the planned $25 million Lakeside Center in Prospect Park will be Tod Williams Billie Tsien and Associates. The word comes indirectly from Mr. Williams and a posting about an appearance he is making in March at Georgia Tech. At the very end of his bio it says "Current projects include a software campus in India for Tata Consultancy Services, the Asia Society Hong Kong, the First Congregational Church in Washington DC and three projects in New York City…Bill T Jones Arne Zane Dance Studios in Harlem, two ice skating rinks in Prospect Park and Harmony Atrium for Lincoln Center." The firm's most prominent project is the American Folk Art Museum in Manhattan. The choice is supposed to be formally announced on Feb. 20 and we assume a design will be unveiled as well. From the look of their work, it could be quite interesting.
