The glass atrium, which rises dramatically from the plaza, symbolizes the transparency and accessibility of government. While its form recalls stone formations in Yosemite, the design is forward-looking, integrating the latest technology.  The architecture complements Stockton’s historic downtown with massing and materials to achieve a human scale. The building shows promise in serving as a catalyst for revitalization in the downtown area with an urban design that increases pedestrian traffic. 

The energy-efficient building utilizes recycled and low-VOC materials and water-efficient fixtures.
