City Hall

About City Hall

Reflecting Austin’s natural beauty, Austin City Hall is a unique landmark gateway to Austin City government. The building and plaza serve as a gathering place for public discourse and community collaboration with informality, friendliness, environmental sensitivity and innovative technology.

Built of Texas limestone and sitting on the site of a once-raucous 19th Century bordello district, Austin’s copper-clad City Hall is as unique as the community it serves.
The following key concepts were integrated into the design:

  • Reflects Austin’s culture
  • Accessibility
  • Unique to Downtown
  • Playful and unconventional
  • Environmental focus
  • Technology focus
  • Iconic, like the Capitol
  • Government transparency
