Green Building, Center for Earth Sciences, MIT

I. M. Pei
1962-64




Pei designed the plan for this section of the MIT campus and three buildings as well--the Green Building, a skyscraper of twenty-one stories, and two strongly horizontal buildings, the Dreyfus Building and the Landau Building. Although of concrete, the color of the Green Building is similar to the limestone of neighboring structures.
