Frank Gehry's new computer science and artificial intelligence building at M.I.T.

The Ray and Maria Stata Center at M.I.T.

Built for resident interaction and adaptability, Gehry says the building “looks like a party of drunken robots got together to celebrate.” With the Disney Hall in LA and the Millenium Park Music Pavillion under construction here in Chicago, Gehry is leaving an original imprint on several major U.S. cities.

I absolutely love Gehry's work. This is an amazing building- where is it located. One of my favorite trips I ever took in Spain was to the Guggeinheim in Bilbao.

This building is in Cambridge, MA on the campus of MIT. It's the new computer science and artificial intelligence building. Two of the famous roll of office residents are Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the WWWeb and Noam Chomsky. Imagine running into the likes of that en route to the cafeteria.

I imagine there is a lot of instances of freshmen student wetting themselve, under the circumstances. Maybe they sell clean undies in the vending machines. They're inventive like that.

This is one of my favorite -- if not my most favorite -- Gehry buildings. It reminds me of the Hundertwasser Haus in Vienna, somehow.
