Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

Do you know if there are still ATC functions in the old tower? There's still the bridge connecting it to the new tower, but I wonder what the other impact will be.

Re: MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

I like it. It gives me vaguely sinister vibes, but in a nice way.

Re: Scape Student Housing | 1252-1268 Boylston Street | Fenway

I'm not a luddite, I just do not accept the premises that (a) the technology will continue to improve [to the point of outmoding human drivers] and (b) that this is a solution especially for cities. ...

Re: Scape Student Housing | 1252-1268 Boylston Street | Fenway

lol at the idea that fully autonomous cars are anywhere close, or a reasonable solution for cities.

I'm all for transportation improvements if they're mass transit. I'd put decent money if I had...

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

I don't know, but my guess is that it creates a sense of resolution of the elevations. It gives them both a considered and defined top, a way to end the building as the eye moves upward. The first...

I believe it's just two different colors of brick.

Re: 10/11/2018: HUGE Development Regarding Boston Area College Dormitories

It's not 36,000 but I got out of school within the past few years, and there are definitely luxury students to put in these projects. Pick a new residential building around town from the last ten...

Re: Allston-Brighton Developments

I think it'll probably look good in real life but these curvy undulating facades always give me the impression of being made of cut-out paper.

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

That's gonna be a no way from me on both counts.

Replacing the on-WB with an off-WB at Mass Ave doesn't seem like it corresponds to any demand, but I guess you're saying this would be the only...

Re: BU Development Thread

I like it, visually and because it will reduce heat gain in a way that glass-only couldn't. If they orient and space these right they could save a bundle on operable shading inside.

Re: BU Development Thread

I love this thing, build it as rendered. It's a bit big and I think the rooftop/garden scheme could be more ambitious but this is a hell yes from me.

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

Also, really, whom does this serve? Is liking to look at lit up buildings at night enough to justify them? LEDs are very efficient but they're not free, and it hasn't stopped being a good idea to...

Re: Boston Congestion Zone Charging

Seems fine, as long as the proceeds were to fund transit. Whether it's always true or not (it's not), the people who contribute the most to congestion say "I wouldn't drive if the T didn't suck." We...

Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

I think, upon seeing the rendering, that this is somewhat salvageable. If the glass is reflective enough it'll appear pretty light during the day, reducing the contrast between it and the precast....

Re: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

I don't really like any of these but I would echo what others have said and choose one that makes people somewhat uncomfortable.

One of the most relevant dimensions of the King legacy is the way...

Really disappointing evolution. The original was interesting and cool.
