Intitial thoughts on the vfw replacement

October 26th, 2009
contra  [html]
Went to a contra dance at the new West Cambridge Youth Center on ths site of the old VFW hall. This is where the Thursday night contra was until 2004 when the building was torn down.

The building is remarkably like SpringStep, a relatively new dance space in Medford where the thursday night contra dance met briefly before spending most of the past few years at Scout House in Concord. Both spaces are very orange, but it's not just the similarity in color. The youth center was designed by Cambridge Seven Associates while springstep was designed by Andrew Cohen Architects. So I don't know how they came to be so similar.

Both are a good bit too modern for my liking.
