Perhaps obviously, but often forgotten, it’s all about light. Well, light helps in a way at least. I won’t delve further because I know this essay has been written by countless photographers over the ages, rather I’ll just bring it up as a reminder.

The government sure knows how to build for itself. This subsidized palace of bureaucratic happenings rises from the humble dirt, then spends the entirety of its self expounding its own importance and grand stature. Yes, we get it, you run the show.

Maybe if Boston runs into some austerity measures they’ll have to cut some paper-pushers at this ultra mansion and start selling off pieces as loft-style condos. Grand chamber as home theater.

Unlikely.
