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:
301 W. 2nd St., Austin, Texas
