Dreyfus was designed to express its location at a major campus intersection. One end of the 5-story rectangular building cantilevers out to create an open portico over an important pedestrian path that continues straight through to meet other walkways. The building is linked into MIT’s campus network by a 3-story bridge and three underground tunnels.
The interior of Dreyfus was renovated in 2003; its plastic-faced and board-formed concrete exterior remain intact.
