    Boston Skyline

    ^Agreed. Ablarc, what I had in mind was site-specificity rather than originality., justin

    Boston Skyline

    Sorry for being cryptic, ablarc. I was refering to your original photoshopped Boston skyline. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I took your point to be: wouldn't Boston's skyline be much better if it were peppered with towers like the kewl new ones from around the world. If that's your point, my...

    Best New Development Nominations

    The Mandarin. I neither love nor hate the architecture (certainly no worse than the much-ballyhooed Stern building on CPW). But it is the single best act of street-wall repair since we started destroying it after WWII, and for the forseeable future if Columbus Center continues on its present...

    Harvard - Allston Campus

    Much as a Harvard-Allston-Longwood subway is a great idea, it's ridiculous to want to bum it from Harvard. The University's transportations needs will always be adequatly satisfied by shuttle busses; even if all of Cambridge campus, physicists and economists included, made a daily hegira to...

    Downtown Crossing/Financial District | Discussion

    How 'bout each store putting in its own canvas awning? Not as much protection, but it might be colorful and recall Washington St. of yore.

    Cambridge Infill and Small Developments

    Sure: Y-U-C-K! If I were God, and if they errected that in my honor, I wouldn't wait till they died to cast them into hell, no teleporting to heaven allowed. justin

    Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

    That's a compliment, I take it? If generic Williamsburg style were to establish itself on SBW, it would be a quantum leap for Boston architecture. I find no fault with this building. justin

    Columbus Center: RIP | Back Bay

    Re: Columbus Center A practical suggestion: I was away for a few days, and I would much prefer to be able to check for news or pictures on CC without having to scroll through page upon page of UFP theology. Can one or the other be hived off to a separate thread? justin

    Apple Store Thread ][

    I beg to differ. It took real talent to make a building that matches the height of its neighbors, fills its lot, and still manages to feel like a missing tooth in the streetwall: The gray grid behind the glass was, I think, put in at the behest of neighborhood context-guardians, and it helps...
