The architecture has no warmth, no charm, no sense of place or history. It might as well be in Houston on Beijing or Dubai. And because of that it will be out of style before it’s even completed. Why not go back to the roots of the gorgeous MIT riverfront buildings that are timeless? So sad.

I work in the office space in E40 directly above the active work site - there is a large crane and group of workers directly below my office area today. There is a strong cigarette odor in my office even with the windows closed. I know that the job site is posted as non-smoking. Can you assist in enforcing this?

We're now 2 months past the planned reopening of Wadsworth off of Memorial Drive, and for the past month the update has mentioned "the project team anticipates this work to last at least 2-3 more weeks." Is there any realistic timeline? The rerouting to park in the E62 garage adds at least 10 minutes to the commute. Is it possible to station a police officer at the crosswalk near the T station on Main Street to help manage the pedestrian and vehicle traffic flow during the morning rush hour to make this more manageable, especially given the ongoing delays?
