Re: Boston - Most Embarrassing Blight That Tourists See

Even tourists with no architectural interest can tell that its ugly and doesn't fit what they thought (cobblestone streets, brick churches).

Re: Boston - Most Embarrassing Blight That Tourists See

West End. If you are entering Boston from the North, the first thing you see is that horrible mass of 60s apartment and office towers, and you think "Isn't Boston all historic and shit?".

Re: Providence developments

Ha! Planning board just rejected it. Hopefully someone else will come by with a better design.

Re: Briv

I would say thats a little overnegative. Archboston is not without it's problems, but not ready to die either.

Re: Aerials

Amazing how flat the business district is. Really accentuates the Customs House.

Re: Nominations: ArchBoston Biggest Urban Planning Disaster

How has no one mentioned the West End? From vibrant, diverse, mixed use district to empty "parks" dotted by residential towers and crossed by maintenance roads and alleys. Not even true city blocks.

Re: New us masterplanned city.

Some of the islands could do. Some minuscule coastal townships between BH and Eastport would also work. There are lots of un-incorporated territories up on the St. John River and other places in...

Re: New us masterplanned city.

Great idea! I've dreamed many times about this.

Why should China have all the fun? They get to build new ones every year or so.

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

God this thing is an embarrassment. Shorter, squatter, uglier. Even the "great hall" is worse. The shape isn't even the worse part. The facade looks like it was designed by a two year old on LSD....
