MIT Media Lab | Building E14, 75 Amherst Street | Cambridge, MA 02139

Actively promoting a unique, antidisciplinary culture, the MIT Media Lab goes beyond known boundaries and disciplines, encouraging the most unconventional mixing and matching of seemingly disparate research areas. It creates disruptive technologies that happen at the edges, pioneering such areas as wearable computing, tangible interfaces, and affective computing. Today, faculty members, research staff, and students at the Lab work in more than 25 research groups on more than 350 projects that range from digital approaches for treating neurological disorders, to a stackable, electric car for sustainable cities, to advanced imaging technologies that can “see around a corner.” The Lab is committed to looking beyond the obvious to ask the questions not yet asked–questions whose answers could radically improve the way people live, learn, express themselves, work, and play.

The December 2015 Breaking the Mold Conference will take place on the top floor of the Media Lab, with a view of the Charles river and the Boston skyline.

Enter the building through the 75 Amherst Street entrance and take the elevator up to floor 6.
