Re: One Greenway (Parcel 24) | 0 Kneeland Street | Chinatown

This is a very interesting, abeit short comment. Do you care to expand upon what makes this look prison-like to you. I am not arguing with you on this ... I am just interested as a designer what...

Re: One Greenway (Parcel 24) | 0 Kneeland Street | Chinatown

Drove by this the other day. I may have to eat my words. It is a pretty solid feeling piece of work. I still wish the panels were half the size for scale purposes ... but all in all this has a...
