"I was surprised I was using colors. I can't stand colors ordinarily because, in part, I don't know how to use them. But, also, they feel abrasive to my eyes. So I was amazed that I was doing this with a patina. But I was convinced that for the Barclays Center, which is so loaded with that metal look—the rusting Corten steel—that I wanted something that was lighter and brighter."
—Ursula von Rydingsvard
