Have you been curious about Boston University's Center for Computing and Data Sciences? That’s the building dominating the view from Storrow Drive that looks like books stacked on top of one another in somewhat precarious fashion. Observers have dubbed it the Jenga building.
Why Jenga? It’s a word derived from kujenga, a Swahili word meaning “to build.” The toy company Hasbro markets a kid’s game under this name. Players remove blocks from a tower and stack them on top, gradually making the structure more unstable. Read all about one observer's take on the building here.
Members of Beacon Hill Village, as well as members of the Beacon Hill Civic Association and Beacon Hill Seminars, have been invited to a talk about this building and a tour, led by Walt Meissner, BU’s Associate Vice President in charge of operations, and his team.
Meet at 665 Commonwealth Ave. Boston, MA 02215 - closest T station is on the Green Line (B) - BU East Stop. Free.
