Our lab had the privilege of moving into the Frank Gehry-designed Stata Center, or building 32, a couple weeks ago. It isn't finished yet; most notably, the dining establishments are still under major construction. When all is done, a pub will be located two doors down from my office. That may be a bad thing in terms of foot traffic.

But I think no matter what they end up doing, I love this building. If you went to MIT, let me show you - they finally did something right.

One friend described it as a modern-day castle, another as a perfect place to satisfy wanderlust. This is what I want my house to be like - full of interesting little nooks, crannies, bridges, dramatic staircases, lots of space, lots of light, and the feeling as if there's always something new around the corner.

Come by when you're in town! I think the building dedication is sometime in May (though not everything is going to be done until this summer, probably).
