San Francisco City Hall

San Francisco's City Hall reopened after being restored. The whole structure now sits on rubber and steel discs that allow it to move more than two feet laterally without damage in the event of an earthquake.

The building is absolutely beautiful…massive and aristocratic! It will serve as the center of local government and of the city's Van Ness Civic Center complex.

This project was designed both to repair damage done by the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake and to make the 1915 structure earthquake-resistant. Both modern communications and utility systems have been installed. This clean, well-lighted place of government is a welcome addition to the city and a showplace, of which the residents of San Francisco can be proud.
