Re: Fenway Theater | 12 Lansdowne St | Fenway

I was serious when I asked for your suggestions, you're an architect. Better facade design sounds more like a slap down. Or a lazy answer. Sorry to have bothered you.

Yes, that's exactly what I was referring to. And, if in fact, they are lit-up signage, even better than banners!

I disagree. I think the marquee and the vertical signage already provide plenty of visual interest without resorting to gimmicky tricks like banners. Im not suggesting they need to change anything about the exterior of the building.

I'm not convinced those are banners anyway. They look to me more like video panels. So yes, sort of banners, but not in the traditional sense. Look at some of the larger images posted by stick n move, they look more like veins, with some three dimensionality.
