Photographer's Note

Like a golden pyramid stabbed into the ground, the Michael and Kemper Goodwin designed Tempe Municipal Building has me wondering if everyone working there went to one side of the building's upper floor, would it tip over? I liked the light that morning, but found the shape difficult to photograph while conveying its design and size.

The building serves as the city hall of Tempe, Arizona. It was built during 1969-1971 and, starting in July of this year, is undergoing a decade long interior and exterior renovation.

The building's inverted pyramidal shape helps in keeping the building cool in summer and warm in winter. The ground floor comprises only 2,025 square feet (188.1 m2) of reception space, while the second floor is 5,625 square feet (522.6 m2) and the third floor 10,000 square feet (930 m2). The council chambers are in a semi-buried basement level. The building is flanked by free-standing fire stair towers.
