The Tang Center for Management Education, MIT

Cambridge, MA

The Tang Center for Management Education is a classroom and conference facility for the innovative teaching methods and professional development programs of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Management. The 44,000-square-foot building contains a 300-seat auditorium, four discussion classrooms ranging from 75 to 130 seats, and a corporate resource center for placement and recruitment. Supporting meeting rooms, offices, breakout, and lounge spaces are distributed throughout the building to encourage use by graduate students, faculty, and staff. The auditorium foyer opens to the lobby and serves as both a reception area and a student lounge. Artwork by Jackie Ferrara is integrated into the public spaces as part of M.I.T.’s Percent-for-Art program. The Tang Center occupies a visible corner near Kendall Square in Cambridge: its glazed stair tower and pedestrian bridge punctuate the exterior and serve as a visible gateway to the Institute’s east campus.
