Summary
Behind the glistening façade of Boston's John Hancock Tower lies one of the most embarrassing moments in architectural history. The insurance company wanted to express their corporate might by building a modernist skyscraper in the heart of Boston's historic core, threatening to pull their financial weight out of the city if they faced opposition. Little did they know that this act of arrogance would haunt them forever. Their dream tower turned into their worst nightmare and what followed is one of the most unbelievable tales in architectural history, involving collapsing foundations, windows falling out and a skyscraper that was likely to topple over
