The Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston (100 Northern Avenue, Boston MA) is ironically known more for its architecture than its art, but also makes for one of the best romantic date ideas around. Originally opened in 2006, the museum is primarily constructed out of glass and sharp angles which make it particularly stand out from the primarily concrete jungle that Boston is known as being. The ICA was designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and one of its most interesting features is a “cantilevered” glass space that hangs above the Boston Harbor.
In addition to the art displayed at the Institute, its presence has also served to improve the area as well. The area adjacent to the Institute known as Fort Point has been deserted for the most part. While artists enjoyed the area that inspired their creativity, it has only been recently that the Fort Point area has been revitalized to include more touristy attractions including new stores and restaurants.
