Austin City Hall

The CIty Hall complex, by architect Antoine Predock, occupies a prime location. The landscape responds to the urban context and the “Balcones Fault” imagery of the building. To the north, the design conforms to the “Great Streets” concept. To the south, the design opens onto a plaza filled with live oaks, cedar elms, and red oaks. Understory plants reflect the Edwards Plateau to the west and the Post Oak Savannah to the east. Roof gardens cascade down the building like Hill Country Ranch Terraces.
