Facts

  • The raised elements in the Martha Schwartz-designed plaza are security features intended to look like glacial drumlins, a reflection of Minnesota's natural landscape.
  • The plaza won several awards, including the 1996 National Design Citation from the General Services Administration, a 1999 Merit Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects, and a 2000 National Endowment for the Arts Federal Design Achievement Award.
  • The plaza includes the popular and whimsical "Rockman" sculptures, designed by Tom Otterness.
  • The building is connected to Minneapolis City Hall by a tunnel under South 4th Street, and the Public Service Center by a skyway bridging 3rd Avenue South.
