Concepts of permanence, permeability and ‘creating a building within a garden’ inspire the design for this place of worship. Under a canopy of Gingkos a layered planting of Rhus typhina, Betula papyrifera, Acer palmatum, Cornus sericea, Juniperus and Panicum offer foliage variety, texture and a vibrant seasonality viewed through the glass walls of the public Christian Science Reading Room.
