Ray and Maria Stata Center

Hard to believe that the Ray and Maria Stata Center celebrates its seventh anniversary on MIT's campus this March, 2011. Designed by world renowned architect Frank Gehry, this striking building—with its tilting towers, many-angled walls and radical shapes—changed the face of MIT and transformed Tech Square. Today it is the headquarters for the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems, and the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy. Other than housing classrooms and faculty offices, the Stata Center boasts a cafe, a pub, a fitness center, and an amphitheater. Stata is named for the co-founder of semiconductor maker Analog Devices, Raymond S. Stata '57 and his wife, Maria. In this video, see the early models and floor plans of this landmark building as well as its first visitors.
