Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

I understand the impetus to try to spare rural Western motorists, but I still find it irksome. No matter how far-flung some residents are, Boston is the sun which sustains their lifestyles. No one...

Re: Question on genesis of Architectural styles

This is...quite broad, and pretty much the main subject of architectural history and theory. I'm reluctant to reduce to a response here what is really and education's worth of an answer, but really...

Re: Boynton Yards | 1-2 Earle Street | Somerville

It would be very difficult to be at all interested in this building. The driving principle for the facade seems to be, "mullions are good, so more mullions is better, and many mullions is best."

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

Podium looking very solid; cladding on the res tower looking like warmed over Pierce leftovers, and not in a good day after Thanksgiving kind of way. I am not holding out hope for the office tower.

Re: Downtown Crossing

Any chance we'll replace the Arch St. garage with something nicer in the next cycle?

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...

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.
