Administration Building, Christian Science World Headquarters

Administration Building

I. M. Pei and Partners, Araldo Cossutta, Lead Designer, 1968–1973

Harleston Parker Medal, 1975

A 26-story tower anchors the east end of the plaza, its verticality playing off the sweeping horizontality of the Colonnade building and shimmering plane of water in front of it. It housed the church's administrative staff until 2008, when they moved to Christian Science Publishing House at the opposite end of the plaza. The building is now leased out as office space
