Minneapolis’ New Public Service Building is an exercise in transparency. Marking Henning Larsen’s fifth project in North America, the project aims to use Scandinavian design principles to promote greater equity and accessibility in local government. Its sleek glass exterior reflects the imposing granite façade of the adjacent Minneapolis City Hall, suggesting a physical metaphor for the city’s evolving commitment to transparent, accessible representation. Housing 1,300 city employees from a range of municipal departments, the building consolidates, modernizes and brightens the face of local government. Designed with a central focus on public accessibility, it provides a physical infrastructure that better supports the diversity and civic dedication of Minneapolis.
