Subsequent growth saw the construction of landmark buildings by leading architects, including Alvar Aalto, I. M. Pei '40, Eero Saarinen and Eduardo Catalano. Through a massive new building campaign, the campus has recently gained signature structures from the drawing boards of Kevin Roche, Steven Holl, and Frank Gehry.
One of the most ambitious building initiatives in the history of MIT is now nearing completion. Over the last five years, more than ten major construction projects have transformed the campus. The new facilities support what is most unique about MIT: its ability to use leading-edge science and technology to tackle the world's most challenging problems.
