Standing outside Gordon Hall @harvardmed , which won a 2017 Preservation Achievement Award #AllianceAward for its marble restoration. @shawmut_builds is hard at work on a related project adjacent to this building. #lookupboston #longwoodmedicalarea #marble #columns #architecturelovers #bostonarchitecture #restoration #igersboston

With seamless access to regional highways, MBTA stations, @hubway bikes and more, residents of Bulfinch Crossing will find that the sky’s the limit when it comes to getting around Boston.
The pigeons are roosting again on newspaper row. They are especially fond of the former Boston Post building (now Jewish Advocate building), which houses the oldest continuously-circulated English-language Jewish newspaper in the United States. #pigeons #goodmorning #lookupboston
Never noticed this building lit up in pretty colors before. #lookupboston
it's important to • look up • ... and i spent a good chunk of 2017 doing just that. . the last year hasn't been the best - not for me, not for many. the world is in a heightened state: of turmoil, toxicity, passion and emotion. and i tend to absorb that energy. so i spent a lot of time trying to keep things in perspective this year - to take a deep breath and remind myself that things may be tough, but they've been tougher. and when #perspective was reaaallly hard to find, i'd look up, and soak in my surroundings. i'd admire the ceiling tiles, or the clouds, or the lighting. . i believe that, when times are hard, it's even more important to • look up • ... for when you have to stretch the hardest to find the upside, that's where you discover the most. . may 2018 be a year where things are looking up. . . . . . #boston #bostonpubliclibrary #BOS #bostoncommons #barharbor #maine #cleveland #CLE #playhousesquarecleveland #newjersey #wtc #oculus #NYC #newyorkcity #financialdistrict #worldtradecenter #lookup #ceiling #clouds #lookupnyc #lookupboston #lookupnj #lookupcleveland #newyearseve #resolution #goals #intentions #goodbye2017
In the heart of Boston’s historic neighborhoods and coveted open spaces, here’s where the residential tower at Bulfinch Crossing will rise.
It won’t be long before demolition gives way to a rising residential tower. Swipe through for a look at what’s to come!
Dramatic light on @kingschapelboston yesterday afternoon. A National Historic Landmark, King's Chapel is a fine example of American Georgian architecture. Although the original design included an ornate steeple, it was never built due to lack of funds. At the time the chapel was built (1749-1754) Boston had a population of around 16,000 people. The structure marks the first use of granite for building in Boston. #bostonhistory #lookupboston #holidaywreath #eighteenthcenturyarchitecture #theprettycities #iwalkedthisstreet #granite #peterharrison #gentlemenarchitects #dramaticlight #georgianarchitecture #nationalhistoriclandmark #freedomtrail #city_explore
Birthplace of Ben Franklin on Milk Street. He was baptized across the street at @oldsouthmeetinghouse and briefly went to school around the corner at Boston Latin School, the first public school in the United States. #FoundingFathers #firstpublicschoolinthenation #bust #facade #AmericanHistory #americanphilosophicalsociety #diplomat #declarationofindependence #AmericanRevolution #treatyofparis #usconstitution #virtue #100dollarbill #lookupboston #bostonhistory
"Light never knew how good it was, until it hit a wall."
Sundial, sunset.
Black Friday? Try sparkly blue sky Friday.
I do love how the Millennium Tower looks surrounded by clouds and the right lighting. 👌🏻 #lookup #lookupboston #skylineviews #bostonarchitecture #millenniumtower #downtowncrossing #igboston #igersboston #iheartboston #bostondotcom #igcity
It’s always fun to revisit past job sites. At @bostoncollege #gassonhall we provided stone cleaning and conservation of the ceiling and artwork. #lookupboston #preservation #architecturalrestoration #motivationmonday #bostonpreservation
Terra cotta tiles and bricks are good sunset catchers.
The key to surviving sunsets at 4:30 is to get outside around 3:50 and catch the last glorious moments of daylight.
Fading foliage, shadows in the architecture.
You can see it on the buildings. The light is getting softer and the days are getting shorter. #lookupboston @bostonu #autumnlight
Anyone who doesn't look up between Charles and Kendall is missing the best part of the trip.
Last light, looking up. This is why we never quite get around to pulling down the ivy.
It's the magic yellow season at our house.
Bonus trip north. Best latest Mt. Washington Valley foliage I can remember!

It was hard to know which way to look--the sky was cotton candy glorious in all directions.
Hey @winslowtownson you made me a Sports Illustrated Face in the Crowd! That said, your focus was elsewhere, as well it should have been.
Lilacs. Today. Go figure.
Slow rollout on autumn foliage around here. At least the unpleasant stage of trees pre-shedding brown thirsty leaves seems to be over.
Morning glory to the max! October blues don't get any more glorious than this. 💙💙💙

We've been doing advocacy work near Maverick Square, East Boston's earliest commercial center. #EastBoston 's street grid was laid out in 1833. Pictured here is the colorful mural celebrating the East Boston Tunnel (1904), the "first underground tunnel in the U.S." #EastBoston #advocacy #bostonbyfoot #waterfront #plannedneighborhoods #murals #streetart #lookupboston

It felt like an eclipse, all over again.
Thank you to all who came out last night for a social with @bos_yngadvisors @eskdboston. The cocktails were delicious (there's a reason why Eastern Standard is the reigning #LibationsforPres champ!) and we enjoyed our chats with people from so many different #architecture #preservation backgrounds. We talked to a conservator working on architectural ruins in Honduras, an architect and project manager currently working on a MIT site, and someone who had to get up especially early for a phone call to India. Now that's dedication! Look for more events throughout the year as we share our vision for a continually vibrant, world-class city that respects, protects and celebrates its historic resources for the valuable contributions they make+ prioritizes harmony and enduring quality in new development. #lookupboston #social #professionals #architecture #fun #cocktails #citgosign #KenmoreSquare #Honduras #Cambridge #conservation #archeology #historicpreservation #cityplanning #urban
Gorgeous evening, almost a full moon, and there is still time to make it to @eskdboston. Head over to #KenmoreSquare and join the @bos_yngadvisors for a social! #moon #cityhall #customhousetower #traffic #citylights #social #lookupboston #theprettycities
A photo of a photo shoot of a pose to match a statue of Bacchante and infant faun at the @bplboston...taking a selfie?
Sad news to start the week. When things get heavy take a moment to #lookupboston . #johnsingersargeant #murals #architectureforthesoul
While waiting for the foliage to pop, Adams House offers a hint of reds to come.
Thataway to the washroom, back when Clover Food Lab was the Hayes-Bickford cafeteria.
Canada geese headed outbound in the inbound boating lane. Go figure.
Join the Young Advisors @bos_yngadvisors for a social with the reigning #LibationsforPres champs, @eskdboston this Tuesday, October 3 at 6 PM. #events #cocktails #historicpreservation #boston #professionals #lookupboston #KenmoreSquare
Gave up on the #1 bus. Walked to Fenway. Good call.
Ah, so here's where all the cool #igboston and #igersboston kids with their tripods and long lenses hang out around sunset!
I just figured out that the O in Broadsheet's neon COFFEE sign has an open and closed face.
Good morning #Boston . Today is preliminary Election Day. Don't forget to vote! #lookupboston #getinvoled @cityofboston

We spied the @harvardmed #GordanHall #Fenway #AllianceAward #marble restoration gleaming in the afternoon sun yesterday. #lookupboston #architecture #Boston #urbandensity
Such an incredible sunset last night! I mostly took panoramas because there was too much beauty to capture. It was nice to take a few minutes from my work to stop and admire this view. Feeling very thankful and blessed to witness this. ❤️ . #goodbyesummer #sunsetporn #igcolor #boston #igersma #igboston #igersboston #igboston617 #bostondotcom #bostontravel #bostonskyline #bostoncommon #bostonlove #iheartboston #cloudporn #cloud9 #lookup #lookupboston
