The Publishing House lobby
(Formerly the Hall of Ideas)
This neoclassical hall, built in 1934, is a unique and beautiful space with historic architecture. When the Christian Science Publishing Society constructed a new headquarters at the height of the Great Depression, this building housed massive printing and bindery equipment to produce The Christian Science Monitor and other Christian Science periodicals on-site.
As a celebration of our common heritage, this grand two-story space was created with materials internationally sourced from Portugal, France, Belgium, England, Germany, Italy, Czechoslovakia, and Australia.
