Potential new location for School of Architecture and Planning identified

MIT has identified the Metropolitan Storage Warehouse as a potential new location for the School of Architecture and Planning (SA+P). The proposed move would let the Institute create a new hub for design research and education, allow the school to expand its full range of activities, and open new spaces for public use.

“It’s about really creating a design hub for MIT on the campus, bringing the expanding and increasingly important areas of design from across MIT — art, architecture, and urban planning — together in one place,” says Hashim Sarkis, dean of the School of Architecture and Planning. “Moving does not address just the school’s aspirations, but MIT’s aspirations.”
