Sprint Center: From Flying Saucer to Squished Marshmallow

New design drawings for Kansas City's Sprint Center (Kansas City Star, registration required) show the cost-driven evolution of the structure's design. The initial design drawings featured a rakish glass-covered exterior, while newer drawings envision a still-glass-covered, but more rounded exterior, shaped like a mildly squished marshmallow.

I haven't decided whether or not it's an improvement. It appears that they are settling on 18,500 seats, which in my opinion is at least 1,000 seats too small. Oh well, what do I know?
