Government Center, Boston

Somehow, this sculpture by Ben reminds me of the horrible, horrible Government Center Plaza in Boston. To quote from the linked page: "The theory behind larger stories at higher levels in the new city hall was to allow pedestrians to view more of the plaza, but the net result is a feeling the building is hanging over one's head. The theory behind a wide open plaza was to create recreational space, but the final result is a feeling of being in an open field looking for the quickest way out especially at night)."
