Garbage in your eyes. The Kennedy Federal Building is a Gropius. Almost all of the drab brown and gray boxes in the financial district you and others bitch about were designed by leading architects of their time including Pietro Belluschi, TAC, Emery Roth and SOM.

I agree. Also, the State Office Building looks like a giant USB thumb drive.
