Very interesting building, much nicer than most of the cookie cutter designs we have in southern California. Nice to see some pride taken in the city building, water feature is nice and very large.
Sadly one thing about it that reminded me of southern California were the transients loitering on the grounds. My wife did not think it would be safe at night

If you like brutalism, this is a masterpiece. The Dallas City Hall is a muscular building. You have to admire the boldness of the IM Pei design and the way the top floors lean over and out. They're happy have you go in and take photos and go up to the 7th floor to the cafeteria and look out the windows. We went on a Friday and it was pretty quiet.

My uber taxi driver dropped me off here as I wanted a proper recognised building in Downtown Dallas as a reference point to get another taxi back to my hotel in Coppell.
The building is magnificent, and a beautiful water feature in front of it.
I later found out it was used as the Police HQ in the Robocop film as it looked futuristic.
Spent a few minutes absorbing the tranquillity and the sound of water. Lovely.
Several hours later, I returned and called my Uber can for the ride home, again taking in the sight of the building, water feature and magnificent flags fluttering.

This was a very peaceful building when we visit. There is a nice grassy area in front and a water feature and memorial flag poles. Across the street is a memorial to the fallen Dallas policemen and women.

Dallas City Hall was built in 1978 and is a cream colored building in an inverted pyramid style. This was an I. M. Pei creation and has that look of many buildings that were built in the new wave era. It has that "it's different" feel, but nothing that is going to stand the test of time like many of Dallas' finest buildings.

If you get to Pioneers Cemetery keep walking up to the City Hall. Not a great deal to see but some nice sculptures and a nice place to sit and watch Dallas life.

This is City Hall located in Downtown Dallas. This is an ordinary building but the exterior is huge and good.

If you are in the area and interested in architecture this is an interesting building to see. Some say it was built upside down and it was featured in the movie Logan's Run.

Not much to see here: an unusual architectural specimen from I.M. Pei; rather sterile. Apparently featured in the "Robocop" film. Worth a walk-by if you are otherwise touring downtown.

A short walk south from downtown, the nice open park area in front of this large, unique building is has sculptures, reflecting pool and some absolutely great views of the Dallas skyline. A special treat early morning or on weekends without all the people and traffic.
