Technology Square is a commercial office building complex in the Kendall Square neighborhood
of Cambridge, Massachusetts, immediately adjacent to the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology (MIT). Tech Square was jointly developed by Cabot, Cabot & Forbes (CCF) and MIT on
a 14-acre (5.7 ha) site which had previously housed a tenement (demolished in 1957) and a Lever
Brothers soap factory (closed in 1959). The architects were Eduardo Catalano and Pietro Belluschi.
The original architectural style was Brutalist (especially the central building), with a large open plaza
paved with concrete and featuring wide shallow stepped levels. The first building (545) opened in
1963, the second (575) in 1964. Two more buildings were erected in 1966 and 1967,
[1]
forming a U
facing Main Street made up of three nine-story buildings, and a three-story building in the middle.
