Building 21


Inspired by Building 20 at MIT, B21 provides a hub for creative scholars and staff to network with like-minded talents from across our campuses, and freely explore ideas and projects they may otherwise not have. This is a place where students, faculty and staff can re-experience, re-model, re-build, and re-invent the entire edifice of higher education.

From quantum physics to student affairs; from neuroscience to student politics; from philosophy to immersive realities; from the microcosm to the campus, B21 is a space where one can explore, play with, manipulate, bend, break, probe, and recreate the multi-faceted aspects, dimensions, and experiences of ideas, knowledge, thinking, self-development, and education.

B21 is not an accelerator nor a research center; it will not seek research funding and it will not give credits. Projects do not need to produce results to be considered a success, and experimentation for the sake of experimentation is more than welcomed. B21 is a sandbox, a theatre studio, a playground, and a renaissance ‘atelier.’
