Interviewer: "So, what inspired this design?"
Architect: "Well, I was begging for change in front of a Holiday Inn Express and this woman walking by was wearing turquoise jewelry so, ya know..."

Miami coloration is a nice touch in New England. More of it please.

Though I respectfully disagree, I would be amenable to an 'exchange program' in which Boston sends some of its clunky 'Boston Boxes' to Miami. Hell, I'd be ok with a neon-pink high-rise in the shape of a flamingo if it meant getting better proportioned buildings downtown.

Re: Cambridge Developments

The building is the architectural equivalent of a mullet: Interesting at street level. Tacky up top.

I would love to have seen more deco or streamline moderne buildings in Boston, but today we would just get tacky retro approximations.
