Re: MIT Campus infill and small projects

Interesting that the angled floor plate look is done with add-ons instead of being structural, they're falsies. The only sour note is the clunky exhaust stack, should have been more modernist. This...

Re: Office Tower | 125 Lincoln St | Leather District

I like it too. It's funky industrial constructivism that is all but absent in timid Boston.

Re: LaGrange Tower | 47-55 LaGrange St. | Theater District

On the far right is 60 Wall Street, the most atrocious building in NY. Peak PoMo madness. Never again.

Re: Allston-Brighton Developments

Well done. Certainly emphasizes what a generic dullard the place next door is.

Re: Harvard - Allston Campus

This is well done: minimalist, elegant and a fine focus for the quad. Mies would be pliesed.

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

A pedestrian death race to cross anywhere here and hopefully get to the other side alive. And no marked lanes!

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage, 20 Clinton Street

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

Love this. Could have been just another basic box but it has ambition and nicely updates the futurism of Googie stations of the 50s/60s.

Re: The New Retail Thread

Harvard Sq. J. Press men's clothing store has gone out of business after 86 years! Deceased by rising rents.

Re: Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

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

Most people will probably never notice, it's not screaming at you, but once you do notice it just kind of cheapens your impression of the building. Guessing they wanted the panels to add some kind of...

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

Saw this on Saturday and the oil-canning was in full effect all over. Really unfortunate choice of materials for the window panels. An otherwise decent building looks like it's partially clad in...

Re: Bulfinch triangle

This is turning out quite nicely, a street wall restored and a useless plaza is now history. One of my favorite buildings, simple and modest but still a strong presence.

Re: Simmons University Living and Learning Center | 300 Fenway | Longwood

The nature of the college experience today is not a tangent to a thread about a college campus.

Re: Pier 4 Condo Building (Former Anthony's site) | Seaport

The wood pulls it all together in both materials and color. This seems to be delivering what the renderings promised.

Maybe the idea of college has finally reached its natural limits. Outrageous cost and toxic ideological indoctrination have taken not just the shine off the experience but also the finish. Group...

Re: One Post Office Square Makeover and Expansion

One Boston is fine as is. It looks powerful, a strong contrast to the anemic-looking weaklings found here in abundance.

Re: Quincy Center Redevelopment

Note the new mid-rise at lower left. Believe that was previously a block of low-rise retail, now it's a blank gray parking garage wall. Congrats Quincy for creating a new downtown dead zone soon to...
