Or take the T out to Cambridgeside Galleria.
The Globe reports on a meeting of the Back Bay Architectural Commission in which you can almost hear the grinding wheels in members' heads slowing to a halt because Apple has dared to propose replacing a completely non-descript two-story building with a three-story glass building right across from or near some of our city's most treasured architectural icons, such as the World's Largest Milk Carton, the Giant Sun-Blocking-Wall Convention Center and the Darth Vader Building.
Donna Prince, an alternate on the commission, acknowledged that the design was "beautiful," but that it "doesn't have a sense of place."
Ah, sense of place. Maybe Apple needs to come back with a design consisting entirely of red bricks. After all, what says "Boston place" more than bricks? With awnings, since the commissioners seemed particularly concerned about preserving the current copy shop's awnings, because, Lord knows, Boylston Street doesn't have nearly enough awnings.
