The Rafael Viñoly tower is not so much about the broken/rundown concept. It's a tower with a staircase carved out, which for me gives a very clean and beautiful effect, which comes down to the ground beautifully.


But the architecture of Erick van Egeraat most certainly is about fragmentation

Personally, I love Boston City Hall. And before somebody says I haven't seen the brute in person, I have. It's easily one of the best Brutalist buildings I've ever seen.

Cambridge buildings are beautiful, yet in the middle of all its historical buidlings is a 1960's ugliest building ever built....... however perhaps in another 200 years it will be also seen as beautiful

Are you kidding? This is 'the Rock', a masterpiece of Erick van Egeraat. It looks like a giant meteorite which just hits the building. I think it is the best building in the entire area.

The lowrise in the middle looks also very nice.
