Koch Institute of Integrative Cancer Research, MIT

Home for cutting edge multidisciplinary Cancer Research made possible due in part to philanthropic contributions by David Koch. And like any other project in MIT, this building is as much of a connector as a stand alone facility. New below grade tunnels connect to existing campus facilities for an organic campus growth. This eight story structure aims to integrate world leading cancer research for optimal outcomes.
