If you find yourself in Cambridge Mass check out:
Building 32 / Ray and Maria Stata Center: I recommend seeing Frank Gehry’s design of the academic building on the MIT Campus. According to a Boston Globe review “the Stata is always going to look unfinished. It also looks as if it’s about to collapse. Columns tilt at scary angles. Walls teeter, swerve, and collide in random curves and angles. Materials change wherever you look: brick, mirror-surface steel, brushed aluminum, brightly colored paint, corrugated metal. Everything looks improvised, as if thrown up at the last moment. That’s the point. The Stata’s appearance is a metaphor for the freedom, daring, and creativity of the research that’s supposed to occur inside it”. It is located at 32 Vassar St. in Cambridge.
I also recommend walking through Harvard and Harvard Square.
