The Morningside Academy for Design (MAD) is housed in the School of Architecture and Planning, with equal bearing in the School of Engineering, and connects students, faculty, and researchers throughout MIT’s five schools and the Schwarzman College of Computing.

In 2025, MAD will move into the newly renovated Metropolitan Warehouse. This versatile space will hold research labs, design studios, lecture halls, collaborative classrooms, makerspaces, exhibition areas, and spaces to engage with the community and industry.

The Morningside Academy for Design was founded in March 2022 with a $100 million gift from The Morningside Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the T.H. Chan family.
