ARCHITECTURAL RECORD: “MIT’s Building Boom Brings New Slate of Major Architects to Campus”

Posted on July 5th, 2019 by Dara Lin

Posted under: _MIT Site 4, Press

“On the Kendall Square side [of MIT], a pair of towers currently under construction on Main Street will form the new ‘eastern gateway’ to the campus. One [Site 4], by Boston-based firm NADAAA, in collaboration with Perkins+Will as architect of record, is a 28-story, 454-unit graduate-student residence with daring cantilevers and views of the Charles River. The structure will also include retail, offices, a childcare center, a 200-seat forum for public events, and the new MIT admissions office.”

“[MIT’s current developments] are more contextual, more aligned to the institute’s goal of melding with its Cambridge surroundings, in an effort to promote healthier, more dynamic interaction between the institute and its neighbors.”

Site 4 construction will be completed in summer 2020! Read more HERE.

The Summer 2019 edition of Arquine examines the ability of architecture to show and to teach by taking a look at architecture schools around the world. Among the works featured are the Daniels Building and the Melbourne School of Design, both schools that inspire their occupants through their form and integration.

“[The Daniels Building], in bringing together restoration, renovation, and reinvention, is a hub for education, research, and outreach focused on the creation of more environmental, beautiful, and socially sustainable cities.”

“The building itself is a laboratory for experimentation and research…. self-explanatory in its operation and architecture, revealing a logic of construction layers as a pedagogical tool.”
