MIT Media Lab

In 2010, the world-renowned MIT Media Lab expanded into a new six-floor structure with approximately 163,000 square feet of laboratory, office, and meeting space designed by architect, Fumihiko Maki. This time-lapse video showcases the unique features of this building, which houses seven labs and various combinations of working groups. The design — which includes open workshops, a central atrium, glass-enclosed elevators, and spectacular views of the Charles River and Boston skyline — fosters collaboration among such diverse groups as the Biomechatronics group, the New Media Medicine group, and the Smart Cities group, which is developing foldable, stackable electric vehicles.
