All those big name firms and they produce that...
Could have fooled me it was Elkus or some local developer. Massively disappointing.

I feel like the most most high profile, money backed projects usually end up coming out the worst. Harvard had an opportunity here to create an attractive, walkable, neighborhood and campus, like their original one. But its just turning into a big office park ornamented with random gimmicks. Also, yes cantilevers at this point have just become random gimmicks, and are no longer, in of themselves cool.

^I get what you are suggesting however I do love the evaluation of “weird” architecture along the Charles River.
