MIT remembers Building 20 and its important role at the Institute for decades

MIT's Building 20, built in 1943, was called the "Magical Incubator" because over the course of its long history it housed a range of laboratories involved in some of the most important and ground-breaking developments in science and technology, from acoustics to radar. This short piece was produced for the March 1998 commemoration that gathered former tenants of the building before its demolition in 1998 to make way for the Ray and Maria Stata Center. An exhibit showcasing its history can be seen in the Stata Center.
