Created By: Southfield City Centre
As Southfield transformed from township to city with a burgeoning population, the 1870s town hall outgrew its usefulness. Acting on the behalf of the City Council, the Southfield Building Authority retained Crain & Gorwic of Detroit to create the layout for the Civic Center Campus and hired the architectural firm of Pirscher & Jarrett of Ferndale to design City Hall (opened in 1964), the Parks & Recreation Building and the Southfield Library. Some say the design is inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright for its projected roof, exaggerated eaves, and long, rectangular shape.
