Re: Residences at Readville Station | 1717-1725 Hyde Park Ave | Hyde Park

Re: Residences at Readville Station | 1717-1725 Hyde Park Ave | Hyde Park

If they were up in arms about the continuing proliferation of fast-casual-architecture I would be right there with them. Otherwise, the traffic study will happen and all will be proven out. Its ok...

Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

Otherwise ... cool.

House of Blues better up their game.

Re: Downtown Crossing

In our office ...we call that "the art of not being there". Underappreciated, but very satisfying to do right.

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

That is all true ... accept it should have all been better. Lets not settle just because "something" finally happened. Its still pretty bad urban-ism at its core.

Re: Gables Seaport (née Waterside Place 1B) | 505 Congress Street | Seaport

I care about the branding as much as I care about the facade of the building. (facade = branding, branding = facade) Careless branding devalues the work.

Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport

If mistakes were not made ...they sure put in enough effort to make us think that there were mistakes made. That means someone failed in my book.

Re: Emerson College - Little Building Addition + Renovation | 80 Boylston St | Downto

Laser scanning and 5 axis stone cutting routers and good precast concrete make this all possible. This project pushes the idea of historic preservation into the digital age and is proving that there...

Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport

Your a good guy. We all start rants from time to time. Keep it up. As long as we stay civil it makes us all better. Drink multi-sylabic beer and carry on.

Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport

I design lots of club sandwiches. Probably over 30 in my life. I think I get the right to say whether a sandwich has too much mayo on it. At least I have the right to speak my opinion. Right?

Wow? You are surprised? When you can throw up dressed up low income housing and people will pay top dollar ... you get this. Unfortunately common in Boston right now.
