Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

No chance whatsoever. Remember. The people who are looking forward to this being occupied are the people who pushed the design into this direction. Architects don't just show up and say "here is...

Re: Market* Central (née Mass + Main) *mostly residential | 415 Mass Av | Cambridge

I kinda like the ice blue color of the Styrofoam (highly flammable by the way). I kinda wish it could just look like that.

Re: MIT.nano

Has it been mentioned that Wilson, the author of this project is now part of HDR? Rest In Peace another Boston based design firm. This is not a new trend, just another domino to fall. It is likely...

Re: Harvard SEC (Science & Engineering Complex) | Western Ave | Allston

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Re: MXD | 145 Broadway/250 Binney | Kendall Square
