(The Rinks Anaheim)

Hockey parlance typically reserves the term “heaven” for outdoor rinks in ethereal mountain lakes and ponds in the snowy plains. Anaheim for obvious reasons cannot support an outdoor hockey heaven. However, Mr. Gehry’s billowing clouds clouds of undulating wood and sheet metal is a close second. Taking a more literal route, the rink appears like a heavenly cloud set down amongst us mortals.
