This statue sits across the road from where the MIT Visitors Center. It is very large and you can even walk into the structure. The statue is made up of numbers and is a rather ingenious idea and perfect for MIT.

If you are visiting the MIT campus and you are at all interested in math (and who would be visiting the campus and not be?), checking out this sculpture is definitely recommended.

This is a famous landmark on MIT's campus that is worth visiting. It's a statute next to the student center and across the street from the main building entrance. It's also a good photo shoot opportunity.

Very interesting landmark on MIT campus. Great place for picture taking and meeting place. The composition of the sculpture is a great conversation starter for young people interested in stem, the arts, and how the linkage is eternal.

Lattice like structure with symbols and figures worth taking a look at. It is a great representation of MIT.

This place is a must-visit, both during a day and after dark! If you are not an artsy person, you can still enjoy various reactions to the same piece of art. :)

Everyone want to sit to take a photo of this. Quite interesting to remind us of the formula ..... Kind of like the design of it too. Just in front of MIT main building.
