“Mayor Menino Announces Christian Science Church Complex Awarded Landmark Designation by Boston Landmark Commission”. “One of the most prominent and successfull modern urban complex in the world”
Early leaders of preservation district zoning of New Orleans used the term of “Tout ensemble” (Keith Morgan from Boston University).
This term is totally applicable to the Christian Church Complex with its collection of buildings and landscape of historic and architectural significance articulated around a 688 feet long water mirror.
Araldo Cossutta, the design architect comments: “Today it is difficult to imagine the Church Center without its reflecting pool”.
