Our New Building
With energy-efficient design features, numerous gathering spaces, and classrooms equipped with sophisticated technology, E62 and the Joan and William A. Porter 1967 Center for Management Education are a masterful blend of utility and beauty. Click on these photos to learn more.
Designed by Santa Monica-based architects Moore Ruble Yudell, E62 was built over the course of three years.
The most energy-efficient building on campus, E62 was designed to function as a “living” structure. Its features include light-sensitive window shades, motion-sensitive lights, a green roof, and an irrigation system that responds to changes in weather.
In front of the building’s Main Street entrance sits "Ring Stone," a sculpture designed by Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang. Measuring 39 feet long and weighing approximately 14 metric tons, the sculpture's interlocked rings represent the spirit of interconnectedness and collaboration that MIT Sloan fosters.
Spread over 215,000 square feet, E62 serves as home to the entire MIT Sloan faculty, marking the first time in decades that all faculty members have been housed under one roof.
Students and faculty enjoy access to 35 group study and breakout rooms, reflecting the School’s focus on teamwork and discussion-based learning.
One of E62’s most beautiful design features is the 155-million-year-old German limestone that lines the building’s exterior. Embedded with fossils, the limestone can appear beige, orange, or pink depending on the light.
With the construction of E62, nearly 30,000 square feet of outdoor space was added to MIT’s campus. The two main green areas hug the front and back of the building, facing Main Street and the Charles River, respectively.
The $142 million building was largely funded by generous donations from MIT alumni and friends.
As the most energy-efficient building on campus, MIT Sloan’s new home is equipped with numerous sustainability features, including a green roof. The roof, which is planted with sedum, absorbs rainwater and reduces runoff and stress on drain pipes. It also encourages natural habitat creation and helps filter pollutants and carbon dioxide out of the air.
