Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

Yep still like this...

It has a mass/weight to it thats nice to see these days. The way the old limestone buildings did, but without being old or limestone.

Didn't anyone during the design process say, "wait, how's light going to get in?"

The more I look at this, the more I feel like (David Bowie's) Warhol in this scene from Julian Schnabel's Basquiat.

"I can't even see what's good anymore..."



If you haven't seen this film, you're missing out.

Orwellian maybe. But, actually, probably a good design for its planed use.
No outside world to distract from the rapid output of the course materials.

not, omg what a nice day on the Charles, Harbor and sailboats, etc.......

That's honestly kind of a nice Scandinavian vibe in the first pic with Twenty20 and this. Definitely some visually intriguing architecture, if not beautiful.

It's at least nice to break all the glass with a some white stuff, even if I can't imagine ever wanting to work there.

Architecture is not allow to be not beautiful. I learned that here at AB. I think there is legislation coming to that effect.

And suddenly thanks to Poolio I like it. And it’s because he beautifully put it in context. He brought the art out of this neighborhood.

A lot of landscaping and window cleaning at the site today. Looks like they are putting the finishing touches on this project.





















Nice day to be hanging around.

Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

Looks awesome. Unique facade, nice color, unique massing... check. Also it has a “weight” and a permanence to it that buildings just dont have anymore when theyre all glass, old buildings used to have this, so its nice to see here. It also has a timelessness to it with the combination of these factors. I think its a great building for this spot.

Looks too much like the ugly Lowell Wang towers.

Re: Education First (Phase III) | 10 North Point Blvd | Cambridge

I was wondering if they will be selling the Brighton Complex once this thing is open. If so, it would be a great add for BC. It's just across the street from BC's new baseball fields.
