Seventeenth Church of Christ, Scientist in Chicago was founded in 1924 and built its first permanent church home, designed by Harry Weese & Associates, in 1968. The seven-story structure maximizes the prominent six-sided site at the intersection of Wacker and Wabash. The primary church auditorium is styled after the layout of a Greek amphitheater, with walls clad in travertine and a centrally located wood podium. The auditorium is also home to a 3,316 pipe Aeolian-Skinner organ.

Behind the Scenes Access: Experience the peaceful oasis of the church auditorium lit with natural light from skylights and bands of clerestory windows.
