The Christian Science Plaza is a 14-acre pedestrian refuge amid the busy traffic patterns of Boston's urban environment and attracts thousands of visitors each year from all over the world. In the heart of the Plaza sits The Original Mother Church, built in 1894, and its domed extension, built in 1906. The Plaza also includes an arboretum of linden, oak, and honey locust trees, a 686-foot-long reflecting pool, the children's fountain, and the world-famous Mapparium?, the most popular exhibit at The Mary Baker Eddy Library. The Plaza has been influenced over the past two centuries by several architects, including Chester Lindsay Churchill in the 1930s and the firm of I.M. Pei & Partners and Araldo A. Cossutta, Associated Architects, in the 1970s and is a designated Boston Landmarks Property. Prudential Center complex, currently stands as the 2nd-tallest building in Boston, behind the John Hancock Tower. The Prudential Tower was designed by Charles Luckman and Associates for Prudential Insurance. Completed in 1964, the building is 749 feet (228 m) tall, with 52 floors. It contains 1,200,000 sq ft (110,000 m2) of commercial and retail space. Including its radio mast, the tower stands as the tallest building in Boston and is tied with others as the 77th-tallest in the United States, rising to 907 feet (276 m) in height. A 50th-floor observation deck, called the Skywalk Observatory, is currently the highest observation deck in New England open to the public, as the higher observation deck of the John Hancock Tower has been closed since the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. A restaurant, The Top of the Hub, occupies the 52nd floor. Source: http://convergenceexhibit.blogspot.in/ & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prudenti...
