Boston Arcology

Say it with me now: My ninja, PLEASE!

Dubbed "BOA", for Boston Arcology, the project was designed by E. Kevin Schopfer as a floating arcology much like the one proposed for New Orleans a few months back. Capable of housing over 15,000 people in new apartments, condos, hotels, offices, and a new city hall, the ?BOA [Bank of America might sue…] extends as a long linear box from Rowe’s Wharf - supposedly in an attempt to preserve existing views and sitelines, while emulating the general massing of Boston by "exud[ing]a rigorous geometric format."

The proportions are, of course, based on the Golden Ratio - and the diagonals within the rectangular frame are actually meant to be a reference to the Boston Common [criss-crossing paths contained within the rigid boundary of the city].

What? It’s a huge box on the waterfront…
