Wilson Architects and MIT Celebrate MIT.nano at “Prelude to an Opening”
On June 6, MIT faculty, key stakeholders and other members of the MIT community were granted a sneak peak of the campus’ newest building, MIT.nano.
The 216,000 GSF research building will serve as interdisciplinary core for nanoscale materials research and includes cleanrooms, characterization suites, prototyping facilities, teaching laboratories, work areas, and a science art gallery. The new facilities will support research in the fields of energy, quantum science, life sciences, and manufacturing.
The celebratory event, deemed, “Prelude to an Opening”, celebrated this major achievement in both the science and architecture. The event kicked off with a reception in front of the building, followed by a presentation about the story and design of MIT.nano.
Wilson Architects’ Samir Srouji, and other leaders from the design team spoke of the project to a well-received audience of key stakeholders and MIT faculty.
MIT.nano’s official grand opening will be October 2018.
