Building 45 (MIT Stephen A. Schwarzman College of Computing)


The MIT Schwarzman College of Computing is looking ahead to another milestone: a new building on the MIT campus to call home.

The building provides state-of-the-art space for computing education and research. It also serves as a nexus for interdisciplinary work, engaging computer scientists as well as faculty and students in sciences and engineering, architecture and urban planning, business management, and the humanities and the arts. The building is designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, a firm that has created some of the most technically and environmentally advanced buildings in the world.

Located on Vassar Street, the building links the MIT campus to vibrant Kendall Square, drawing thought leaders from academia, business, government, and the nonprofit sector. It also encourages collaboration and breakthroughs within the Institute; for example, MIT faculty working on human intelligence and machine intelligence will now be next door to Building 46, home to the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory, and the McGovern Institute for Brain Research.

The building is a welcoming home for the next generation of MIT leaders in computing and AI, helping to share the college’s exciting work with a global audience and opening the college to the world.
