Description John Hancock Tower:

The John Hancock Tower, officially named Hancock Place and known colloquially as The Hancock, is a 60-story, 790-foot (241 m) skyscraper in Boston.

Tall, skinny glass structures were a goal of modernist architecture ever since Mies Van Der Rohe proposed a glass skyscraper for Berlin. Such buildings as Gordon Bunshaft's Lever House, Mies' Seagram Building, and Frank Lloyd Wright's Johnson Wax Headquarters attempted this goal, but many of these designs retained structural artifacts that prevented a consistent, monolithic look.
