Back to the Future -





When it comes to architecture, Boston seems to be a city in love with its past. We preserve it, or we imitate it. Everything must "fit in" to its historic neighborhood profile. That wasn't always the case - if we go back about 50 years we can explore a brief era when Boston was a city curious about the future of design and architecture.

Modernism and Brutalism are not universally loved - but I'd happily embrace one polarizing, challenging new piece of modern architecture in Boston today - rather than a whole lot of "nothing special" that's been built this decade.


Christian Science Plaza is a favorite spot of mine for photography - the afternoon light is magically reflected and carved by the simple concrete masses, designed by Araldo Cossutta of I. M. Pei & Associates.
