Question: Is Fan Pier's proposed architecture worthy of a world-class waterfront?

Here's a hint:

The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) appears above on the bottom left.

On the website of ICA architect Diller Scofidio & Renfro, the view of Boston Harbor from the ICA's Media Center window is shown. The architects suggest that "the space provides a stunning perspective of the water, framed as through a viewfinder, with neither sky nor horizon in sight."

On the website of Fan Pier developer The Fallon Company, a marina is proposed in the bay directly in front of ICA Media Center window. The proposed marina can be seen in the above rendering, in front of the ICA.

Athens of the East? You decide.

Your comments as a visitor to the SAND website would be appreciated and forwarded for discussion.
