MIT Sloan School of Management

Academic Campus | Cambridge, Massachusetts

Overlooking Kendall Square and the Charles River, the new MIT Sloan School precinct is a major sustainable expansion that includes six courtyards and a green roof. 

Halvorson Design provided a broad range of landscape design strategies, working closely with architects Moor Ruble Yudell and Bruner|Cott. The site includes a series of courtyards, plazas and green roofs.

The firm also collaborated with internationally-renowned artist Cai Guo-Qiang to create “Ring Stone,” a striking 50-foot-long sculpture consisting of twelve interlocking granite rings framing a symbolic grove of pine trees.
