Inside the Sponge: Students Take on MIT Simmons Hall

July 27, 2006
by Canadian Architect

This exhibition runs at the Canadian Centre for Architecture’s Octagonal Gallery in Montreal from August 10-November 12, 2006. Simmons Hall, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) award-winning university dormitory designed by architect Steven Holl, is presented from the perspective of its 350 student residents. Inside the Sponge gives voice to MIT’s student body to draw a unique description of the building’s life. It proposes a dialogue between architectural intentions and the process by which a community appropriates space.

This exhibition is presented in collaboration with the MIT SENSEable City Laboratory.
