Barclays Center In Brooklyn NY Offers Insight To Urban Feng Shui Design

The positioning of the Barclay's Center is not in an ideal energy flow location, according to the Feng Shui principles. It has been built on a triangular plot layout between Atlantic Avenue and faces fast on coming and going traffic flow. The triangular shape is said to bring mis-fortune to those who occupy the space if left un addressed.  


The design of this building deflects the fast moving energy in tremendous ways. The curvature of the entire building acts like a river stone. As the water (energy) travels towards it, instead of hitting into it as it would with a square or rectangular design, it moves (flows) around the buildings.


The placement of the subway (with the subway entrance facing towards the Barclay center entrance is great as well. That little design also offer protection for the building and those occupying it. 


As you step closer to the main entrance of the Center, you will notice a unique "hole" design. Lets say if some of the fast moving energy does flow towards the building, this hole design offers a relief pressure point by allowing excess fast energy to keep flowing past. 

It's the subtle details that can make a project breath life of success. Even the blue colors and lights are mirroring some of the base principles in Feng Shui. As you enters from the outside and step into the center, you are greeted by a soft blue light (which is representative of water energy). 

The exterior and interior of the Barclays Center is not only has a sophisticated design, the building is also LEED Silver Certified. 


What is so great about this building design is that it demonstrates what happens when the developers, architectural team and designers collaborate, have trust and faith in the process and take the time execute the project and open themselves up to creative solutions. The end results can go beyond the expectation of the perceived completed project.
