Building Notes

L. Williams Zahner said of the Fresno City Hall #4: “The Fresno City Hall, designed by Arthur Anderson [sic] and Associates with Lew and Patnaude Architects, has a massive dull-finished (#2D) stainless steel roof and interior panels and staircase of stainless steel.” (See L. William Zahner, Architectural Metals: A Guide to Selection, Specification, and Performance, [New York: John Wiley and Sons, Incorporated, 1995], p. 198.) Zahner miswrote Arthur Erickson's name as "Anderson."
