Re: Parcel JK | NorthPoint | Cambridge

Enough with the colossal order windows already. We've squeezed everything we could out of that trend.

Re: Six West Broadway Hotel |South Boston

Personally, I find a reason to celebrate a "boring" building with symmetry, cohesion and texture after countless designs that tried very hard to insert randomness, while drawing from the same...

Re: 14 West Broadway | South Boston

I respect the fact that we both have differing, subjective opinions on this.

For me, the problems with Alucobond are:

Re: Six West Broadway Hotel |South Boston

Sorry folks, I totally dig this. It's clean, symmetrical and doesn't fall victim to the compulsion to add random protrusions or dissonant materials.

Re: 150 Kneeland Street | Chinatown

Oh hell yes. This is wonderful to read.

tl;dr: "We're not using asymmetrical, colossal order windows wrapped in flat, silver or grey Alucobond."

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

Yeah, I'm still trying to figure out when Emerson knew the building was a lost cause.

They put a lot of money into it fairly recently. Within the last decade they built an entire structure within...

Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue

Ideological differences aside, this word salad is not doing you any favors. Please tell me you posted it ironically.

Re: Stillings Garage Expansion | 22 Boston Wharf Rd | Fort Point

That's just bad architecture.

The sooner we can cycle-out of this seemingly-endless style, the better.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I suspect (and hope) the cost and logistics of upgrading 27 B and C line surface stations will force some hard choices on stop consolidation.

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

I like how having a place to live near centers of employment has turned into a game of chance.

Re: South Station Tower

PoMo was the worst. It was all about making terrible decisions and defending them with the idea that it was just "irony" at work.

Re: Marine Wharf (Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites) | 660 Summer St | Seaport

I absolutely love the massing, but the materials look uh...not so hot.

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

This was really the one part of the building that needed the most attention, and they made an excellent choice.

Re: 40 Trinity Place | 426 Stuart Street | Back Bay

Looks like it could be part of the Ritz complex, and definitely riffs on the Millennium Tower.

It's long past time for something new.

Re: 40 Trinity Place | 426 Stuart Street | Back Bay

The design looks ready for 2004.

I'm legitimately surprised that Boston architecture seems to have been stuck in a timewarp for so long now.

You wouldn't roll-out a mid-70s design in 1990, and...

Re: Residences at 399 Congress St (formerly Madison Seaport Hotel)

It looks like the stone and wood will go on the ground level. The rest will be generic precast.

Keep 2/3 of the sampler, and delete the portion on the right.

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

Gotta hit their quota of facade styles while dancing around fixing the actual issue with the design.
