Significance: The Tempe Municipal Building, erected in 1971, was designed to be a unique and innovative focal point, the purpose of which was to supply adequate space for the growing community's city government. Aesthetics, accessibility, energy conservation, and expandability were the major components of its architectural concepts. In addition, the building was to provide maximum space without overpowering the available site -- near Tempe's Central business district. This particular location was selected by the City Council to show confidence in the downtown area; consequently, it was felt that the building should exemplify progress in government yet have a timeless beauty that would be compatible with future redevelopment.
