dc.descriptionFourth floor brick outside terrace linking the towers, with chairs and tables; An academic complex designed by Gehry for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The building opened for initial occupancy on March 16, 2004. It sits on the site of MIT's former Building 20, which housed the historic Radiation Laboratory. Above the fourth floor, the building splits into two distinct structures: the Gates tower and the Dreyfoos tower (after other major funders, Bill Gates and Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr.) Contained within the building are the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems, as well as the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy. The construction company, Skanska USA Building Inc., and Gehry were sued in 2007 by MIT for structural problems with the building ("providing deficient design services and drawings"); the suit was settled in 2010.
