Members of the MIT Sailing Team (sail 3) exit a turn behind Boston College (sail 13) during the Erwin Schell Trophy on Sunday on the Charles River. The sailing competition featured 20 collegiate and military teams from across the Northeast.



Workers began grinding the marble chunk-infused floor of the Media Lab extension’s central atrium on Nov. 2, which is now polished to a glossy finish. The expanse of interconnected airspaces surrounding the atrium necessitated smoke curtains (left) for emergency air evacuation, shown here closed for testing. The Media Lab extension opened in early December.

The Media Lab: The $90 million extension to MIT’s world-famous research center was designed by Pritzker Prize-winner Fumihiko Maki, and is a definite sight to see — and see through!



Jungle mural: A variety of tropical animals greet visitors to MIT’s Hayden Memorial Library in Building 14.



Colored walkway: The spectacular walkway between Buildings 6C and 8 reflects colors in the afternoon. Building 6C was completed in 2007. It houses physics and materials science labs.



Underground tunnels: Much of the MIT campus is connected by a subterranean network of tunnels, including the Stata Center and MIT Medical. Try taking an “alternate” mode of transportation down this long ramp in Building 66.

Junior Randall M. Briggs’s robot keels over in a fierce game of tug-of-war to win yesterday’s 2.007 competition in Johnson Athletic Center. The design and manufacturing class culminated in the annual two-day robotics competition featuring over 100 contestants.



MIT President Emeritus Paul E. Gray ’54 speaks Friday at the inauguration of the Lobby 7 Design Contest. The competition, jointly organized by the MIT Class of ’54 and the School of Architecture and Planning, asks MIT students to decide what should fill the four plinths in Lobby 7, originally intended for statues of Greek gods, but left empty following construction. Prizes of $10,000, $2,500, and $1,000 will be awarded to the top three designs in separate undergraduate and graduate categories. The deadline for registration is Sept. 24, with initial designs due Nov. 5. While the School of Architecture and Planning is involved, MIT’s administration has no intent to actually erect any of the winning designs in Lobby 7.
