Re: Quincy Center Redevelopment

It's funny/not funny to see certain areas fall behind on the times. Wisconsin still has so many restaurants and homes with 1970s-era wood paneled interiors, and my home city of Albany, NY still puts...

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

100% with you. I'd say the state of architecture is at a nadir, what with every building, regardless of context, is comprised of poorly differentiated glass and metal.

We're in an age where,...

Re: Mixed Use Complex | 345 Harrison Ave | South End

Re: Boston (née New Brighton) Landing | New Balance Complex | Brighton

Agreed on all points. And NYC is a good step or two ahead of Boston on the black/grey fashion front (although I think historically that's always been the case). I see it every day here... in the...

Re: Boston (née New Brighton) Landing | New Balance Complex | Brighton

Well I'm glad to hear that labs are using color, but I see a lot of residential buildings and office lobbies where there is zero color. Think of One Post Office Square's lobby makeover 5-10 years...

Re: Boston (née New Brighton) Landing | New Balance Complex | Brighton

Yeah, my point isn't in 1970s EPA regulations but rather the last 10-15 years, where so much--particularly interior design and cars--have gone completely greyscale. Otherwise what about 1980s...

So much grey! When exactly did we westernized humans become deathly afraid of color?

Re: The Aberdeen | 1650 Commonwealth Ave. | Brighton

If nothing else, this one was delivered almost exactly as shown in the renders, so yay?

The color is a bit off, but so far put me in the camp of liking it. Get a bit of grime on those bricks and...

Re: Harvard - Allston Campus

For real. The lack of a proper core makes it look more like temporary staging. Plus the fact the non-structural steel is almost as tall as the structural stuff is unusual. Like Steve Buscemi, "funny...

Re: One Post Office Square Makeover and Expansion

^ See post 95 for all the renders.



Ditto. The color is quite rich, and the facade has great dimensionality. One Federal is the brown box that is most in need of an upgraded identity, IMO.

Re: MIT.nano

I've only seen it in pictures, but I'd say the quality is obvious. The overall design language, if not massing, is quite similar to Novartis' 2007 building on Mass Ave just across from their new...

Re: Mixed Use Complex | 345 Harrison Ave | South End

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Sad, funny and 100% true. And that thing is barely par for like 2006. The state of architecture keeps going down, down, down.
