    The complaint about shadows.... on a grocery store.... 🤦‍♂️

    City Hall Plaza Revamp | Government Center

    There are benches with backs in the aforementioned photo by the GSA, next to trees. Agree to disagree.

    City Hall Plaza Revamp | Government Center

    Or just don't post clearly incorrect/misleading information? I share your distain for much of the plaza - don't need to use inaccurate data to critique it then get snarky about it.

    City Hall Plaza Revamp | Government Center

    I'm not debating the plaza. I'm calling our your disingenuous shading graphic.

    City Hall Plaza Revamp | Government Center

    Bunch of trees right next to benches along the GSA per that photo montage earlier - on a rainy day. No I don't have photos. It's barely shade-seeking weather and the trees just finished filling out. And the weather has been generally shit the past few weeks. I'd gladly go read a book over there.

    City Hall Plaza Revamp | Government Center

    This is missing literally all of the trees they planted. There's 100 new ones in the plaza redo, and all the existing ones near GC T stop and Congress St. They provide nice shade.

    View Boston (Observatory) | Prudential Tower | Back Bay

    Yeah I see that. But this looks larger? The scale of that in old renderings doesn't match this.

    View Boston (Observatory) | Prudential Tower | Back Bay

    Is that some new wacky iteration of the Dock Square garage project we haven't seen before? (And was it really that hard to building a more accurate city hall with any of the cantilevers...)

    I actually don't mind plastic as it's more easily beat up, won't scratch like painted metal, and sometimes helps the proportions of taller vehicles today - but along those lines, this it my real problem with trucks today: 20 years apart. (Yes these are different segments of trucks entirely, but...

    Somerville High School Renovation & Expansion | 81 Highland Ave | Somerville

    Do you have a weekly quota that requires 9/10 posts to be intentionally contrarian? lol

    Idea for fixing the housing shortage

    Would probably end up being more expensive. Doing a selective demo like that would be logistically difficult (think of crane/machine access to areas with existing structure in the way). The number of custom façade fittings would balloon exponentially having to deal with sealing around those...

    Rose Kennedy Greenway

    The lack of any kind of shading structure is a huge miss.

    Photo of the Day, Boston Style: Part XVII (2023)

    He's shooting from over in Eastie, probably somewhere around here. Foreshortening at that distance + a zoom lens will produce this effect (not shopped).

    Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

    Maybe an internal collapse? Seems wild to install the full thing (with it clearly matching the same stone color/type as the rest of the entry) then decide to swap it out. That sort of design decision should've/would've been done earlier through physical or digital mockups.

    Foundation Medicine (Parcel P) | 400 Summer Street | Seaport

    Is there something special it's supposed to be connecting to? Just to the middle of Summer Street? Don't remember what/if anything planned for that parcel to the south.

    Harriet Tubman House | 566 Columbus Avenue | South End

    I don't want to sound contrarian, but while I appreciate the bland competency of this project urbanisticly, I really find it irrationally overwrought in some its details and overall massing. Somehow it's doing so much at once yet the result is a mixed bag of handsome and cut corners without...

    I absolutely loath the fake truss.

    Metropolitan Storage Warehouse Redevelopment/Renovation (MIT) | 134 Mass. Ave | Cambridge

    DSR has experience with a similarly weird condition at Alice Tully Hall in NYC
