http://www.icaboston.org/Home/Information/TheNewICA/Project%20Design%20Partners# In Boston, the Big Dig taught us patience, and to always expect construction delays.  There was a great billboard, Lord, i think it was back in the late 80′s or 90′s that said "Rome was not built in a day.  If it were, we would have hired their contractor."  Perhaps Rome’s contractor would have rethought the whole epoxy thing, but I digress.

Anyway, we all shrugged it off like water off a duck’s back when we realized that the new Boston Harbor Institute of Contemporary Art had to put off it’s September 17th opening.  No big whoop, it looks like it’s going to be worth the wait.  Check out the slideshow at their website.  I’m especially drawn to the theater, and I want to know if I will feel like I am cantelievered over Boston Harbor when I am up on the top floor of the building.

The NEW Vessel StoreHolly over at decor8 informed us that Vessel (Candela, Squat, Candeloo etc.) have a NEW storefront now in downtown Boston. Being a Boston native myself I had to give some love to the local boys who done good. Congrats fellas!

Now, if you’re wondering who is this rogue blogger on "Hatch"? I’m the Design Public web/creative/everything else guy and this is my (gasp) third post! I’m sure my parents will call at any moment to discuss my new found fame…

Anyhoo, if you’re in or around the Hub, go check it out at 125 Kingston Street. If not, you can see some great pics of the interior via Holly’s design blog. Go Vessel . Go Sox!

Favorite Brick and Mortar Stores

Obviously we love online shopping; we don’t know what we ever used to do before it existed. But when there is a really amazing brick and mortar store, nothing beats it. There are so few people talented enough to find the perfect space, buy amazing merchandise without a bad piece in the bunch, and edit and arrange all of it in a way that makes you want to move into the store. Those people deserve a giant shout-out.

Design Flights of Fancy

I just returned from a jaunt to Boston/Cape Cod. I had a few design thoughts along the journey. First, the new convention center I passed along the way was truly hideous – it’s like a massive zit on the face of Southie. It reminds me of all of the horrendous “urban renewal” projects that ruined so many great neighborhoods years ago. I have a feeling the people who planned this never read The Death and Life of Great American Cities. Second, on a more positive note, the recently completed Ted Williams tunnel is fantastic – it’s probably the best part of the Big Dig.

Most importantly, the new Delta terminal at Logan Airport rocks. Read the rest of this entry »
