Winded Warriors

If you want to blame the so-far disappointingly commode-esque design for the Warriors arena at Mission Bay on something, look no further than the air itself. In a story with the unfortunate headline "Breaking Wind," the San Francisco Business Times points out that the original-original site plan (also kind of resembling a toilet) failed a wind study, leading the design team to rejigger things this time around. That wall of buildings we found so imposing is oriented in part to keep people's hats from blowing off, because wouldn't that be embarrassing. [SF Business Times; previously]
