Well I guess so, but that particular public art is really creepy...I'm happy to see Puma/FR is adding public art to the above ground garage. Obviously above-ground parking is less than ideal in the first place to look at, but it's nice to see the effort. Assembly Row appears to be evolving with each now garage they've put in, and certainly earns kudos for their efforts.
If a Metro Rock or Brooklyn Boulders-style rock climb gym ever decided to come to Assembly Row, I'd love to see a future garage facade integrate a rock wall. A colleague showed me photos of the High Point Climbing and Fitness rock wall in Chattanooga, TN, and I've been obsessed ever since about the prospect of a similar treatment to above ground garage(s) in the Boston area. Assembly Row might be a great spot for such a venue.
Yes. Right next to the T station fence, for extra-symbolic cromulence.It really seems like they are building a LOT of parking overall.
