Gallery: Chandler City Hall: SmithGroupJJR Creates a Sustainable City C...

The design provides daylighting for 80% of the building, and this among other energy-saving steps helped the project save more than 53% in energy consumption compared to the national average.

Chandler City Hall is a five-story, 187,000 square-foot office building complex that takes up two city blocks and cost an estimated $47 million to complete. A hinged exterior shading device on the western façade provides shelter from the harsh western sunlight, and at night it turns into an artistic centerpiece. The perforated panels shine during the day as they move due to the wind, and at night LED lights shine through the perforation creating art from the colored light.
