Fodor's Review

The home of municipal government since November 2004 and the anchor of the Second Street District, City Hall is a striking modern showcase of the New Austin, loaded with energy-saving features like solar panels and decorated with modern art. The People's Gallery, for instance, is a public exhibit that showcases Texan art year round free of charge. The angular, four-story limestone-and-concrete building is clad in 66,000 square feet of copper. A 40-foot waterfall flows inside, and bands play on the outdoor plaza during free Friday concerts in spring and fall. Tours are available by appointment.
