Re: Brutalist Revival

Seems to me that it can especially be fixed with some high quality glass, greenery, and a thoughtful lighting program.

Re: The Boulevard (née The Times/Littlest Bar) | 110 Broad St | Downtown

It's too bad the narrow wall of windows isn't reflected. Mirrored windows would really frame the reflection of IP really nicely

Re: Marriott Moxy Hotel | 240 Tremont Street (Parcel P-7A) | Theater District

Yeah - it reads as a skinny rectangular building composed of two extra-skinny rectangular volumes, which is cool.

Re: Photo of the Day, Boston Style: Part XII (2019)

Re: Martin's Park | Children's Wharf | Fort Point

Yeah some of it, I believe, is back of the house for the children's museum (and or maybe a group entrance, for buses?) That institutional connection should help ensure good upkeep too fwiw

Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport

They've done a competent job of making this look like two giant slabs instead of one extra giant slab.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

The preferred nomenclature for 'casino people' is 'compulsive gamblers'.

Re: Office Tower | 125 Lincoln St | Leather District

No. The tunnel is shallow (see historical photos above) and it isn't that different from the other adjacent building foundations. And it's actually the dewey square tunnel, which is about 60 years...

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

Yeah this is actually real nice in person. The curve works well from the land-side approaches, even if it looks a little awkward from the harbor.

Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

This is all true, of course, but its also just a microcosm of what has happened to the urban experience as a whole (and not just in Boston - worldwide.)
