I  photographed this building, Simmons Hall, on the campus of  the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass., during a trip to Boston.

Simmons Hall features many colors and  hues  in its recessed window frames throughout the building.   (please see below for additional photo )

According to a write up about the building on, the building is “described as ‘the sponge’ by both architect and residents.” The building features some interesting lines and patterns which even in black and white look interesting.
