I'm stumped as to why MIT would cheap out on this one part of the building when they've gone for high quality everywhere else, and the cost of a semi-transparent/faux glass wall is rather minimal in the grand scheme of Kendall East..Is the top supposed to be grey? If so, why?
It looks like the mechanicsl screen will be on three sides of the building. It looks like the east face will be glass all the way to the top of the building.Of the 9 or 10 floors that make up the cube, 3 are screen. Isn't that an unusually high ratio? It's kind of a weird look.
