Bottom pics: Stata Center, MIT. Across the street from where we stayed. Muy dirty windows--sorry about that. I've never been a huge Frank Gehry fan, so when they told me they can't keep the roof from leaking, I took it as a sign that you shouldn't build buildings that look like a Dr. Seuss cartoon. But maybe I'm just a grouch.

Since I'm working with the guys at StudioBuild on a new deck, I was inspired to check out a few decks and porches on my walk tonight. Not much to choose from, but I suspect this is a consequence of most mid-century homes having more deck or patio space positioned away from the street, presumably for privacy.
But since my house will have a deck out front for all to see, I thought it would be nice to see some other homes with similarly un-private space in front. Benjamin Hills homes here for the most part.
