One of my hobbies is studying how the design of spaces–landscape, architectural, digital–shape experience and encourage problem solving, creativity, and interaction. So it was fun to finally experience the Stata Center. A few photos from the trip on Friday:
The Stata Center for Computer, Information and Intelligence Sciences is built on the site of MIT’s legendary Building 20, a “temporary” timber-framed building constructed during World War II that served as a breeding ground for many of the great ideas that were born at MIT. Designed by renowned architect Frank O. Gehry, Stata is meant to carry on Building 20’s innovative and serendipitous spirit, and to foster interaction and collaboration across many disciplines.
