Whatever color it is, THIS bridge is far more relevant to building a world class city than your half-empty Potemkin Village, foreign despot owned, opaque glass skyscrapers.

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

I actually just started grad school at northeastern and so I spend some time in the new ISEC building (the big blob with wooden slats) and got some photos from inside of the bridge and park. It looks awesome in person!

Here's a small album of some pics I got.

Thanks so much, DAVE! Great to get the perspective looking out from the building, as almost everything lately has been from the opposite direction.

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

Ok, I still don't quite get this bridge. Were the tall sides (which for me create a very closed-in tunnel effect and I'm not at all claustrophobic) built to keep possible jumpers from jumping onto the active rail lines or protecting slightly tipsy college kids or college kids just being college kids from crazy balancing acts with possibly disastrous results? Usually pedestrian bridges have lower railings even if the heights are high up, over rivers or roadways, etc., to provide that feeling of openness.

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

Just a guess, but I suspect it has to do with proximity to Amtrak's electrical lines. All the bridges on the NEC were redone with high walls like that when the line was electrified.

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

i'd have loved the dorm tower to have a bit more industrial look.

any updates for that?
