ruminations about architecture and design

urban gestures

I'm still not convinced that this building is so special. It seems to relate more to the automobile than the street. As a design, it seems to be trying too hard--modernist details with lost of froo-froo.

The lawsuit by Beacon Hill Civic Association against the City of Boston will be as successful as Whitey Bulger's appeal to overturn his conviction for murders. Don't pick a fight against a federal law on the grounds of local procedural issues. The sidewalks are hazardous for everyone, but I suppose that's part of the charm up on the Hill.

I need to come up with a better way to explain Detailing to students. It should only take about four years.
