Those masked figures drapped in white are a chilling sight, that's for sure. Amazing stuff going on behind that glass. MIT, once again, on the cutting edge of new technologies!

There's none of that here...the glass seems to be exceptionally high quality and the embedded black gridlines are a really nice touch (it's unusual to have the black gridlines but yet have a totally smooth outer surface). The masonry materials and other finishes are great too.

Kudos to the designers all around.

That glass would improve the look of Quaker Lane.

I think it is a testament to good design that my only complaint is that I wish there were more sight-lines to be able to see it or I wish the surrounding and attached buildings looked nearly as good.

I've only seen it in pictures, but I'd say the quality is obvious. The overall design language, if not massing, is quite similar to Novartis' 2007 building on Mass Ave just across from their new campus, and it too benefited from high quality materials and execution. More of this, please.
