Killian Court

If it's grand classical buildings you crave in a university, we've got it. (We also have great modern buildings designed by the celebrated architects of today, but we'll stick to historic grandeur in this tidbit.) When MIT relocated from Boston to Cambridge in 1916, architect William Welles Bosworth, Class of 1889, created a plan that invoked classical motifs representing order, learning, and tradition. Several interconnected limestone buildings flow from the Great Dome, which today offers a great view of I.M. Pei's (Class of 1940) Hancock Tower, a symbol of modern-day Boston.
