Wiesner Building Courtyard

Someone right around here is working on a computer that adjusts to its user's moods. The research and teaching facilities in this part of town include the Media Lab, the Center for Cancer Research, Brain and Cognitive Sciences, and Health, Sciences and Technology. The elegant courtyard, designed by Richard Fleischner, is home to Henry Moore's Reclining Figure, a smaller version of his sculpture in the plaza of New York's Metropolitan Opera House. There's more great art inside the Wiesner Building, as MIT's List Visual Arts Center is the region's leading gallery for contemporary art.
