boston cap

Our last day in Boston on Monday really didn't have a plan, but with a bit of online searching, Myron realized that MIT was a trove of architectural treasures, so it became our destination for a day of wandering. There was so much to see that it will be best covered over several posts that I will fill in whenever I can over the next couple weeks, but the overview took us through many eras from Aalto to Pei to Gehry, but our favorites were far and away the two 1955 buildings by Saarinen, as well as a surprise new structure by Maki and Associates that also made a big impression. All that and a walk back across the city to our hotel in Back Bay filled up the day (and wore us out) as a nice cap to the fun week on the cape.
