Dallas City Hall
1500 Marilla - 1978
This Modern civic structure is another signature building of Dallas. It was designed by I.M. Pei and like many of his buildings, features angular forms. The City Hall in plan is a long rectangular building, but in elevation, it reveals its true shape. It is essentially a right triangle turned with one of its points down. The first floor is relatively small in plan with each floor above being larger than the one below. The north wall slopes outward, with large areas of glass. The south facade also has a considerable amount of glass with the east and west sides of the building being mostly concrete.
