Church Center


The Church Center, including more than seven acres of open plazas, will combine beauty with practicality.

New vistas showing The Mother Church will be opened up. The Extension will gain an additional major entrance. The front entrance of the Publishing House will become fully visible for the first time. There will be a reflecting pool and fountain, flower gardens, trees and shrubbery, driveways and walks—all part of the Center's basic design.

The reflecting pool, running nearly the whole length of the Huntington Avenue side of the Center, will have an important role in the overall plan. Almost every building in the Center will be mirrored in it. In particular, the Original Edifice, highlighted in the middle of the complex, will be visible from every angle in reflected images in the pool.
