As the tallest building in Boston, the John Hancock Tower is one of the most recognizable pieces of architecture in the skyline. The tower was finished by I. M. Pei & Partners in 1976 after eight years of shaky development. The entire building is constructed of a “glass skin”, or reflective glass panels that create a sleek and modern design that relays several visually interactive compliments to its neighbor, Trinity Church.
