Wesley House

Normally, I'm not a huge fan of so-called genre buildings, but this one - designed by Kirk Peterson - is well done. Peterson is better known for the projects he did for Patrick Kennedy and the Kennedy offshoot that developed the monster with a Trader Joe's on its ground floor at the northwest corner of MLK. That project makes the Gaia Building look like a model of sensitivity. Unlike both of them, this one is in scale with surrounding buildings and harmonious in appearance. Kudos to the church next door that presumably sponsored it. (It's located across from Haas Pavilion at Bancroft and Dana.)
