Architectural Darwinism: The Secrets of Buildings  

Downtown Boston is a fascinating place to build up your architectural detailing knowledge, both old and new. While the decorations on a building's facade can define its style, did you know that many common architectural features hold secrets that help buildings stand the test of time? A scalloped bracket, for instance, creates drip lines away from the wall and windows below. How do modern applications and materials hold up to ancient standards of durability, and what new engineering ideas are evident? Taking wisdom from Matt Bronski's "Architectural Darwinism," we'll do our own investigating.
