If you associate the Massachusetts Institute of Technology solely with slide rulers and mad scientists, touring the 168-acre Cambridge campus of this premier technical school will enlighten your perspective. Besides its place in history for advances as diverse as gene splicing and economics’ Black–Scholes equation, MIT boasts some of the most renowned modern architecture in Boston. Buildings designed by current “starchitects” like Frank Gehry, along with masters like I. M. Pei, Alvar Aalto, and Eero Saarinen, dot the campus. You can amble along something called the Infinite Corridor, as well as scope sculptures by Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, and Henry Moore.
