The Stata Center
Outside view
The recently completed Ray and Maria Stata Center (left) at MIT is the new home of the Institute’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy. Soon the Brain and Cognitive Sciences building (right) will stand next door, but it is currently under construction. The Stata Center features extensive community space intended for informal intellectual development. MIT hosted a media day at the center to showcase the architectural features of the building, as well as the technological innovations occurring inside.
