The Massachusetts Institute of Technology offers a completely novel perspective on Cambridge academia: proudly nerdy, but not quite as tweedy as Harvard. A recent frenzy of building has resulted in some of the most architecturally intriguing structures you’ll find on either side of the river. Tours depart from the MIT Information Center .

Of all the funky buildings on the MIT campus, none has received more attention than the Ray & Maria Stata Center , an avant-garde edifice that was designed by architectural legend Frank Gehry. Other worthwhile stops on campus include the MIT Museum and the List Visual Arts Center . You can pick up or download a map of MIT’s public art, proof enough that this university supports artistic as well as technological innovation.
