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

It might work well from a distance, but won't from up close (if it can be seen up close.)

The point of dazzle camouflage is not invisibility. It is to confuse the eye as to size, speed and...

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

Re: Volpe Transportation Center Development | Kendall Sq | Cambridge

I don’t think the facade is part of a cage. Don’t dismiss the idea that there are one or more in a secure structure. Plus the checklist of “specialized” glass, hanger like multi story ground floor...

Re: Open Thread

You’ve described it perfectly. That’s one reason why I think adjusting it to “1 meter = 1 foot” of rise seems to be a better approximate.
Either way, bad!

Re: Boston Freedom Wheel | Long Wharf? | Waterfront

That's a good one. Or "Baby Wheel"?

I'd rather have a roller coaster from North Station to South Station.

Re: Crossroads at Kenmore | 560 Commonwealth Ave | Kenmore Square

Re: Crossroads at Kenmore | 560 Commonwealth Ave | Kenmore Square

Re: Motor Mart Tower | 201 Stuart Str. | Park Sq | Boston

^^^ Hadn't thought of that...Yes!

It would be great to...

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

Speaking as an "olde tymer", I have never called it the "Bulfinch Triangle", which I believe was branding by some marketer in the 80's. In my circle of acquaintance its always been:
"North Station"...

Re: Alexandra Hotel Renovation | 1769 Washington St | South End

Could be worse (right, it was). My only regret is that the exposed party wall on the front might look skanky, all in the interest of creating a specimen effect for the old hotel building.

Re: Motor Mart Tower | 201 Stuart Str. | Park Sq | Boston

Needs a small aluminium spire surmounted by giant flagpole in one corner for sinister headquarters look.
