Impressive Architecture: The Ray & Maria Stata Center by Frank Gehry

I guess you have noticed already that, besides interior and design, I love architecture too. Today I spotted this eye-catching building, the Ray and Maria Stata Center at the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in Boston (USA). A modern and seemingly chaotic building with twisting and curving facades. The colorful but controversial complex was created in 2004 by the Pritzker prize winning architect Frank O. Gehry. Very impressive building to see. Be Inspired ....
