Kronos is the Health Sciences Center building at the State University of New York.

[Kathy B., 08/08/2015]

The building has been nicknamed "Kronos" for its resemblance to the giant, cube-like, Earth-conquering machine of the same name from a 1957 Hollywood sci-fi film.

The Health Sciences Center building at the State University of New York, Stony Brook, looks like "Kronos" from the 1950s horror movie. Many other weird things also on campus but, alas, the bridge to nowhere now goes somewhere. The inside of the Health Sciences Center looks like the interior of a space station.

[doctorblues, 07/20/2014]

Kronos was a giant cube-like machine, sent by aliens (aka Hollywood scriptwriters) in 1957 to suck up all the Earth's energy.
