Re: MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

<sigh> Everything looks like something. Can't we just wait and see how it turns out?

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

Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport

Your a good guy. We all start rants from time to time. Keep it up. As long as we stay civil it makes us all better. Drink multi-sylabic beer and carry on.

Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport

Its an assumption having done this for 30 years. And believe it or not you can have an opinion that is an assumption. When you think about it .. you might not be able to have one without the other.

Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport

I design lots of club sandwiches. Probably over 30 in my life. I think I get the right to say whether a sandwich has too much mayo on it. At least I have the right to speak my opinion. Right?

Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport

Wow? You are surprised? When you can throw up dressed up low income housing and people will pay top dollar ... you get this. Unfortunately common in Boston right now.

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

That is an easy one. All of those revivals are based on a set of languages that was legible and understandable. This is a collage at best. A weak attempt at taking a massive project and breaking...

Re: Wentworth Expansion

It all starts and ends with Piano for me. He is the only one putting it all together at that level of design. There are others who are his copies who do lighter versions of what he brings ... I can...

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

Re: Wentworth Expansion

I love his work, and hate when he talks about it. Its all mushy BS. In contrast to Greg Lynn who talks a wonderful game about pretty much the same approach ... but his executed work is garbage. I...

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

Vertical wood will look terrible in 1.5 years unless it is refinished every year. No owner will ever do that ... you could do something fake though but I dont think the ICA would do that either. I...
