Celebrating 150 years of MIT was also the occasion to celebrate the first School of Architecture in the United States. A series of cross-disciplinary works resulted in numerous installations bordering MIT on the Charles River. This installation, a collaboration between Gediminas Urbonas and NADAAA, was to produce a structure on the Charles that could serve multiple functions: as screen, as logo, as “light” structure, as skyline, and among other things, as a base for the revelation of historical research at MIT emerging from CAVS-- all documents retrieved and displayed from the hisotrical archives.
