Imagining MIT by William J. Mitchell

I just received Imagining MIT: Designing a Campus for the Twenty-First Century by William J. Mitchell as a gift.

Having been at MIT for many of the construction projects mentioned in the book — Kevin Roche’s Zesiger Sports and Fitness Center, Steven Holl’s Simmons Hall, Frank Gehry’s Stata Center, Charles Correa’s Brain and Cognitive Science Complex, and Fumihiko Maki’s still-unrealized project for the Media Laboratory — I’m excited to read about the process behind the buildings.
