Pasadena City Hall
City Beautiful Movement
The exquisite 1927 landmark exhibits Italian Renaissance and Spanish influences with its red tile roof, ornate fountain, and lush garden courtyard. Pasadena City Hall is a rectangular edifice outlining a spacious court. The east side is a one-story arcade, and the other three sides are three stories high, with towers at each corner and the main dome over the west entrance. The massive circular structure rises perpendicularly for six stories, and at the top of the dome is the lantern, a column supported cupola 41 feet high, surmounted by an urn and ball.
