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.

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

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.

Even though I didn't go inside the building, I was attracted to it from an architectural standpoint. I briefly walked around the plaza out front which had a reflecting pool with fountain and a couple red floating sculptures in it. I quickly left the area due to the unsettling homeless population loitering around the grounds.

We were in Dallas for an event of some nature (old age has a way of eliminating unimportant things) an had the opportunity to visit Dallas City Hall. I think it is a great design and good use of space.

What is more American than local goverment? True democracy is at on display at Dallas City Hall. If you arrange a tour, the flag room offers an amazing view of Downtown Dallas. If you stop by on your own, you can have equally beautiful views from the plaza. The story behind the building is more interesting than seeing the building itself, though.

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.
