Last year I recall we discussed the possibility of separate categories for infrastructure (best new, best new proposed, worst new, worst new proposed)

Any chance of implementing this?

i think fro the hall of fame/shame we should instate a time limit. Something like that the buildings have to be over 20 or 25 years old (ala the 25 year award) to be eligible. This way the nomination of the building isn't a knee jerk reaction to something .

what about a lifetime achievement award for individual/corporate contribution to the urban condition of Boston? The initial nominee list would be very long indeed:
Charles Eliot, Richardson, Olmsted, TAC, Wheelwright, Bulfinch, Stubbins, Gilman. Perhaps we do it like the MLB Hall of Fame and sweep them in in bunches, or at least get all the unanimous members enshrined in short order.

Yeah. I'll leave it open for a few more days, then we can start the voting. I'm going to post a notice in the header encouraging people to get their nominations in before it closes.
