This building was designed by a recently deceased icon in the architecture world, and at the time of writing is the tallest building in its city.
Where am I?
Answer: Green Building (Building 54), Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The Green Building is a 21-story concrete-frame structure designed by I.M. Pei & Associates and completed in 1964. The cast-in-place concrete is expressed on the exterior facades, with pre-cast units used at the window sills. It has been the tallest building in Cambridge for over 50 years.
