I blame it all on New England Brickmaster

It’s been a while since we’ve taken pictures of the WRTA Bus Station/Prison Visitor Center/Planned Parenthood outlet adjacent to Union Station.

Obviously, I am no fan of beige, but the building is currently well on its way to being finished, and I can’t tell whether I like the weird stripy brickwork (which gives more texture than you could see from the pictures in the design) or if I still find it ugly as sin.

(My conflict, of course, arises from watching too many ads for New England Brickmaster during afternoons of watching “The Brady Bunch” as a child…)

So — readers — does the brickwork redeem this building in any way?

    I think its ugly. Glad I’m not the only one who thought something just wasn’t right!

    It’s weird, but I wouldn’t call it ugly. The odd angles of the glass & metal bumpouts is horribly ugly though, it actually makes the weird brickwork one of the the building’s few redeeming features.
