As an architect, I very much appreciate the creativity of Frank Gehry. When MIT asked for a learning center like none other, they got the Stata Center. It's purely a work of art and is not necessarily designed for efficiency. It is an extremely complicated...More

Inside is ordinary. Maybe that means it is a good work of architecture. It is Frank Gehry. Nothing really to see inside. Very creative and very Gehry.

Went here for a business meeting and then we had a quick tour of the area and the building... Super-cool and amazing people all around! Heart-beating of modern technologies here! I'd like to come back here more often!

What perfect place to have a Frank Geary building in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence faculty. MIT figures very highly in this discipline. You can mainly see the building from the outside, which is most impressive.

If you are a fan of interesting architecture, a walk around the Stata Center is worth the trip. This is quintessential Frank Gehry design with whimsical sections playing against each other. Be sure to walk to the back courtyard as well.

When you see this building, remember your in MIT. How they designed the architecture is amazing. By the way, it's the college of architecture. It's timing that to see the exhibit, MIT hacks is a way on how the students react and respond to express...More
