Leaders in campus design, education, and economic development will convene at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on March 30th and 31st for a symposium on designing places that drive innovation. MIT is marking the centennial of its Cambridge campus with the conference, which is titled "Designing Places for Inventing the Future."
On Wednesday, March 30th, SOM Design Partner Roger Duffy will speak during a session about innovation districts that are growing in cities worldwide, made possible by partnerships between universities, government, and industry. In this context, Duffy will speak about SOM's master plan for Cornell Tech, a new applied science university on New York City's Roosevelt Island that seeks to forge connections between academia and industry. The session, "From Instruction to Innovation," is chaired by Adèle Naudé Santos, professor of architecture and former dean of MIT's School of Architecture and Planning.
