Smack dab in the middle of one of the most drab and charmless higher learning campuses, MIT, is this. The symbolism is obvious and in your face. MIT is very boxy, its finest decorative materials are concrete and black steel and it’s so ordered that their buildings are not named, but numbered. But it’s MIT! Of course they are! I suspect they understood this and made and effort to tip the scale when they commissioned Frank Gehry to build the deconstructivist Stata Center. Of course, it’s run into its share of opposition and controversy as most Gehry projects have. But I say who would expect anything less with such an ambitious design?
