MIT’s Festival for Art Science and Technology will culminate this weekend May 7th and 8th with FAST Light, a series of innovative site specific installations around the MIT campus and along the Charles River. Installations by MIT Department of Architecture Head, Nader Tehrani (founder and principal of Office dA and of the newly formed NADAAA), Professor Sheila Kennedy (Principal of Kennedy & Violich Architecture), and Professor Meejin Yoon (Principal of Höweler + Yoon Architecture and MY Studio) are among the final river front projects that will light up the night along the river this Saturday and Sunday in front of Killian Court at MIT. More information, photographs, and videos following the break

Liquid Archive by Tehrani and Urbonas will create an iconic floating inflatable urban screen in the Charles for the projections at the scale of the city. SOFT Rockers by Kennedy will provide clean energy solar charging stations in the form of outdoor public rocking chairs that absorb power during the day, and illuminate at night.
