ruminations about architecture and design

Friday, January 9, 2015


So, Boston gets the American bid for the 2024 Olympics. The Boston Globe had the usual gushing articles.

Architectural Record had a scathing review of the One World Trade Center building. It could have been more scathing. It didn't discuss the cost overruns or the general idiocy of the program--which still reflects the original pro forma. I suppose the people who work in it will feel safe and appreciate the space more than some of the other terrible high rises in the city.

I look forward to visiting the site again someday.
