There are 5 comments on Iconic or Ugly? Architects of BU’s Data Science Building Explain Their Design

  1. I am BU senior student, and I see how this building starts and finish. I love this building. Not only because I plan to work in the data science area but also because I grew up with this building, which is ICONIC, in my college life. Like the interviewees, I also love the glass’s design and also interior decoration. It gives us a strong sense of the future and technology. Mentioning the huge stairs, it is the social area and the core part of this glass building, the place with humanity, like a heart of a supercomputer.

  2. An eyesore on Boston’s skyline and BU’s campus.

    The mirroring and novel environmentally sustainable, energy-efficient features are the only redeeming qualities of this mess.

  3. Beautiful, iconic, statement building that is not only sustainable but highly functional for its use. It does take an open mind initially, but has grown on me. I’d take this any day over the standard Lego-box, cookie-cutter tall buildings being constructed all over Boston. Well done BU! Alumnus/parent.

  4. Concept is lovely, but Boston is an old city. Why create a building like Government Center that looks absolutely horrendous. We can design beautiful and functional spaces. They don’t have to be one or the other.
