Christian Science Church Center


Today's architect must be master of far more than a single art. He must be well versed in city planning, traffic control, various types of engineering, and rapid developments in the field of communications. He thinks a great deal about people and the needs of the individual in the modern city.

One of the special concerns of the firm of I. M. Pei & Partners, architects for the new Christian Science Church Center, has been to provide a unique setting for the original edifice of The Mother Church and its Extension. But at the same time the Church Center itself must be harmoniously related to the city around it—to the "New Boston"' already taking shape in and around malls, office buildings, and apartment towers.

The new Administration Building, 26 stories and some 350 feet tall, is designed to serve as a visual transition from the vastness of the nearby Prudential Center with its 52-story tower to the lower scale of the entire Church Center complex.
