A Revitalized Campus Helps to Accomplish MIT's Mission
MIT continues its objective of providing state-of-the-art amenities for its faculty, staff and students. The Department of Facilities is a leader in fulfilling that objective by providing the development and construction for sustainable buildings. We also maintain them, clean them and deliver the mail once the buildings are in operation.
Occupying the footprint of Building 12 just steps from the Infinite Corridor at the heart of the MIT campus, MIT.nano will support the activities of 2,000 MIT researchers. It will streamline delicate experimentation and prototyping by bringing together complex research activities that are currently distributed around campus. A world-class facility, it will modernize MIT’s research capacity and deepen the collaboration between disciplines, nurturing game-changing ingenuity and advancing the frontiers of innovation without boundaries, for the betterment of humankind.
Theater Arts Relocation
To house and support the relocated Theater Arts program, Building W97’s systems and infrastructure have been upgraded, and the interior now includes rehearsal spaces, design and faculty studios, offices, costume and scene design shops, dressing rooms, and a two-story theater performance space. The design respects and integrates the original structure and its utilitarian ethos, providing flexible “blank slate” space that can be shaped and reshaped for specific performances and/or to accommodate changing uses.
Construction updates are provided regularly
via the web, email announcements and public notices.
