I’m really excited about this planned new design for Boston City Hall Plaza. The problem with the plaza as it is today is that its scale is too huge; it’s a vast and forbidding desert of brick. These trees, while providing a nice contrast to City hall itself, break the space into much more congenial human-scale spaces. They also nicely complement the daring Brutalist architecture of the building. It’s a nice effect.
