Frank Furness was thought to be the maker of the ugliest architecture ever designed – and of course we now mourn all of his best demolished buildings. Boston City Hall is emblematic of the best architectural thinking of its time – breaking away from the glass box minimalist package of Mies to express all of the varied functions in its distinctive window openings — it might help to have some neon arrows -mayor’s office here, etc.
When life changes cities change – and existing buildings and patterns often need to be replaced to serve new issues.
