Christian Science Church Center


Everyone should benefit when a large urban institution alters the cityscape with an extensive building program. That is why improvement of the central city of Boston and the Back Bay section has been one of the ideas behind the Christian Science Church Center. The Center is planned primarily to meet the needs of the Church, but it most certainly will be a great benefit to Boston.

Isolated planning, which does not take account of the activities and requirements of other groups and the total environment, no longer meets today's urban needs, let alone anticipates tomorrow's demands.

Specific public needs, such as open space, better housing, convenient shopping, and improved traffic and parking have been considered by Carl B. Rechner, Development Consultant for The Mother Church, in his work with architects and city planners.
