I.M. PEI Hancock Tower

Recommended Posts

There was a period there when all windows were temporary replaced with painted-black plywood.. .we called it the plywood palace during that period (late 70's? early 80's?) The building was twisting just enough to mess up the windows and they would pop out. A massive dynamic damper system was installed up high within the building that corrected the problem (as did a new type of window). The view from the observation deck up there is great if you can get in. I believe it may be closed (since 9-11-01)?
