MIT Arts & Media Center
The Arts and Media Center at MIT remains a world-renowned center for visionary computer research. The facility was built to stand as a highly identifiable landmark, celebrating the relationship between fine arts and high technology. It contains a theater facility, leading-edge laboratory spaces, and structural sculptures integrated into the building’s interior and exterior. MIT selected a design team led by the internationally acclaimed architect I. M. Pei and a collaboration of three noted artists to reflect the significance of the project and demonstrate the merger of art and technology. The four-story research and teaching facility also includes art exhibit space, computer rooms, and media research and equipment laboratories. DOC performed extensive preconstruction services, value engineering, and logistical planning to help make this state-of-the-art project a reality.
