Burbank City Hall

Building completed in 1943. Burbank City Hall is one of three City structures listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Though included in 1996, it was not until 2001 that a large addition from the mid-1960s was removed, and parts of the interior restored (including restoration of a mural by Hugo Ballin that had been partially removed to create a passageway). The building is an example of Moderne or Art Deco architecture, possessing characteristically restrained geometry, exterior bas relief panels, and interior murals depicting civic ideals. Hugo Ballin, who also created the famous murals at Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, painted two murals for City Hall. One is located in the rotunda and is called "Burbank Industry." The other, located in the Council Chamber, is called "Four Freedoms." Tours of the City hall are available through the City of Burbank web site. Burbank City Hall is one of the most frequently filmed and photographed city halls in America. Architects-- William Allen and W. George Lutzi. Model by Zoungy.
