MIT

An entry canopy designed for the new ROTC head quarters on the MIT campus was part of a total renovation of the old Heinz warehouse building in Cambridge. The purpose was to create a structure that could help to signify the entry on a building flat against the street with many large similar openings. The result is a series of finger like beams that arch out over the sidewalk, and draw you into the space. The fingers continue inside the entry, and pull you up the stairs into the main lobby of the offices.
