Downtown: L.A. City Hall
The Los Angeles City Hall is still the most universally recognized city icon. The famous 450-foot tower reigned
as the tallest building until the height restriction was lifted by the City Council in 1957.
Stylistically, City Hall is an artful blend of the Classical and Mediterranean traditions, with a decidedly Moderne spirit.
On the interior, a Romanesque influence is predominant. The lower portion of the building is California light gray granite,
while the upper portion and tower are covered with glistening terra cotta.
A popular spot for officai Speeching can be found behind the south steps of City Hall: The Frank Putnam flint Fountain.
