City Hall was built in the late '50's and is therefore part of the later phase of the International Style which was more decorative than the earlier phase, and relied heavily on the beauty and integrity of unadorned natural stone such as marble and travertine. For a late International Style building like City Hall, marble or limestone is far more appropriate, which is why Roscoe envisioned it the way he did. It's nothing short of a travesty that his vision has been marred by tiny men.
