One of the places I made a point of checking out was the very unique building that is home to the Ray and Maria Stata Center which was built by the legendary offbeat architect Frank Gehry. The Stata Center is home to MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), created in 2003 by the merger of the Artificial Intelligence Lab and the Laboratory for Computer Science.
Unfortunately a bit of controversy surrounds the building. Last year MIT sued Frank Gehry and the construction company over design and construction failures.
