Sloan School of Management, 2010
This tour provides an overview of some MIT architecture and public art that intersect with climate and sustainability. It was developed as the result of a collaboration between the List Visual Arts Center and the MIT Office of Sustainability. The tour covers various technical aspects of sustainability (i.e. LEED certification, infrastructure adaptations, etc.) as well as more abstract and spiritual connections to the natural environment.
This tour was created by Effie Jia class of 2020 in Architecture and Design with a minor in Sustainability. Jia was a List Center Student Guide for two years.
The Sloan School is one of the greenest buildings at MIT and was completed in 2010. It is LEED Gold certified, featuring low-flow water utilities, a stormwater filtration system, low-emitting materials, and a facade of sun-shades and screens. These design elements reduce water use by 20 percent, improve the quality of water that reaches the Charles River, improve daylighting, and reduce solar heat gain.
