Corners and Angles at MIT’s Stata Center

An engineering marvel, The Stata Center is one of the most recognizable and iconic buildings on the Campus of Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge. It is a perfect entry  Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Corners 

Boston Globe architecture columnist Robert Campbell wrote “the Stata is always going to look unfinished. It also looks as if it’s about to collapse. Columns tilt at scary angles. Walls teeter, swerve, and collide in random curves and angles. Materials change wherever you look: brick, mirror-surface steel, brushed aluminum, brightly colored paint, corrugated metal. Everything looks improvised, as if thrown up at the last moment. That’s the point. The Stata’s appearance is a metaphor for the freedom, daring, and creativity of the research that’s supposed to occur inside it.”
