Christian Science

The pavilion's main building, topped by a heptagonal pyramid of glass, offered colorful and graphic three-dimensional exhibits that explained Christian Science. The structure, surrounded by 14 lighted fountains, was shaped like a seven-pointed star and rose from a pool of water 100 feet in diameter.

A photographic display in the first point of the star set a thoughtful mood that was carried out in the other exhibits. They ranged from explanations of the Bible regarding God and man, to the relevance of religion in the nuclear age. In one section visitors could listen to verified accounts of healing through Christian Science told by the people who had the experiences.

Near the main building was a second smaller building which housed a reading room for 25 people. Behind both structures was a park with chairs for relaxation and contemplation.
