First Church of Christ, Scientist, Peachtree Street, Atlanta, Georgia
Atlanta
First Church of Christ, Scientist, Atlanta is considered one of the major landmarks in the Midtown area. Built in the classical revival style, it is regarded by Atlanta Magazine, in a December, 1982 article as “the best example of neo-classical style in the city.” First Church has the distinction of having been the first air-conditioned building in Atlanta. This was accomplished by building large air passages directly under the floor of the main auditorium. Huge blocks of ice were placed in these passages, and large fans blew air over the ice into the air ducts in the auditorium to cool the space.

More About Atlanta

Capital and largest city in Georgia, Atlanta is known the world over for its parks, professional sports teams, shopping, museums, and entertainment. One of the fastest growing cities in the United States, Atlanta has been commended by the Environmental Protection Agency for its determination to implement ecologically friendly policies. Unlike many other Southern cities, Atlanta broke with its historic Old South architectural characteristics and opted for a progressive modern style led by native Atlantan John Portman, who created the atrium hotel in 1967 when he designed the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.
