thanks for the third option-- neither of these are all that bad. I've never understood all the fuss about St Cecilia's addition, i don't find it offensive in the least, and it's much better than that staircase, yikes.

The photos of the Harvard Law building don't really demonstrate its full protofascistness, but looking at it compared to the St Cecilia's addition, I still think the latter is worse.

Also, just because something isn't that bad doesn't mean it can't be the worst!

I really don't like Northwest law... I've said it once, I'll say it again.... it looks like a sumo wrestler about to charge at mass Ave.

I like some of the elements of the Harvard Northwest Law Building, but overall it provides nothing to streetlife really, just another piece of university exclusiveness. I declare it the worst development.
