“Meandering along the paths that loop through the southeastern corner of Prospect Park, you climb a gentle incline that didn’t use to exist, wind through a freshly planted grove, and find yourself at the railing of a terrace, with a royal-box view of an ice rink below. Lakeside, the new $74 million complex designed by Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, is a work of stealth architecture, lying low in the landscape like a coulee in the sagebrush, almost invisible until you’re well inside. From other, more exposed angles, all you see is a grass-topped deck that seems to levitate over the ice.”
