Henry N. Cobb’s The American Association for the Advancement of Science Headquarters

Cobb,FAIA, was a founding partner of Pei Cobb Freed and designer of many iconic buildings, such as The John Hancock Tower, in Boston’s Copley Square.

AAAS building, 1997, is four blocks east of the West House on New York Ave.

It is one of the most attractive, dignified modern buildings in Washington,DC, showing that classic architecture can be erected in the US Capital despite a height limitation that prominent architects from outside (and inside) Washington,DC  believe blocks the design of high class modern buildings in the City.

The height limitation is to be reconsidered by the Federal government.Image
