Re: Boston College Master Plan debut

Are you talking about the windswept walk-through from Mt. Auburn Street to the Square? He thought he was in Ibiza.

The rest works pretty well.

Pastoral --as every medieval burgher knew-- was keeping a sharp line between town and country. You walked out the city gate into a ... pasture.

Mixing town and country doesn't yield...

^ Are those proposed new Gothic buildings?

Ambivalence incarnate.

Must be that deep-down goodness.

^ At Yale, the pastoral is inside the courtyards. Havens of peace.

At BC, you're always walking by parking lots.

Some pastoral experience.

Ideal spot for high density. Also ideal for high rise.

If not for NIMBYs, would BC have erected a high-rise dorm here?
