Albany City Hall

Henry Hobson Richardson
1880-83


A "Romanesque" design

This government building, with the look of a church, is one of the most Romanesque buildings of Richardson's career. The use of light granite and darker stone for the trim is typical in his works. Fenestration is varied with both arched openings and mullioned windows.
