dc.descriptionDetail, central tower over west entrance, with copper cupola; Serves as the central location for city government in the City of Pasadena, California and it is a significant architectural example of the City Beautiful movement of the 1920s. In 1923, the people of Pasadena approved a bond measure issuing $3.5 million towards the development of a civic center. City Hall was to be the central element of this center. The San Francisco architecture firm of Bakewell and Brown designed City Hall, which has elements of both Mediterranean Revival Style and Spanish Colonial Revival Style architecture, as well as Palladian. It was completed on December 27, 1927 at a cost of $1.3 million. There are over 235 rooms and passageways that cover over 170,000 square feet (16,000 m2). The defining dome, located above the west entrance, is 26 feet (7.9 m) tall and 54 feet (16 m) in diameter. Source: Wikipedia; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page (accessed 5/8/2013)en_US
