The Stata Center

Frank Gehry (right), the award-winning architect of the Stata Center, explains that the building was designed to “facilitate and encourage collisions of people by accident.” He also aims to make the building open to change, saying, “there’s nothing precious in the forms here and I hope the body language of the building tells you that.” Bill Mitchell (left), head of the Media Arts and Sciences program, tells how the Stata Center was built around “fundamental human needs, like light, air, view, and most importantly, food.” He says, the Stata Center “brings back daylight to a place that is often times dure and grim.”
