Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

What's more, there's no...

Re: The St Regis Residences (former Whiskey Priest site) | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Agreed!

I'll never understand how garbage-looking, flat Alucobond ever became acceptable in high-end construction.

The Jaguar dealership proposal really underscored how insane it is to wrap a...

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

Balconies used to be poured as part of concrete floor slabs. You see this in a lot of '70s buildings.

This turned out to be bad news.

When a prefab concrete balcony exposed to the elements for...

Re: SBWTC /South Boston Waterfront Transportation Center | Seaport

That façade is so painfully half-assed. It looks incoherent and unfinished.

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: 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: 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.
