The NY Times has a cool article in today's business /real estate section about M.I.T.'s campus transformation and the very edgy and modern buildings they have built across the Charles River. According to the article, M.I.T. has spent $1.4 billion constructing 10 buildings over the past decade. No wonder there does not appear to be a downturn in construction industry in the Boston area. They've engaged giants in architecture to build these "trophy buildings" including the likes of Frank Gehry.
I’ve included some photos of buildings on the M.I.T. campus I like.
