Civic Center — begun in 1913 and heavily influenced by the City Beautiful movement — is in an area of San Francisco that was originally sand dunes. Now the area is home to many popular restaurants in addition to San Francisco public and Civic buildings.The current City Hall was completed in 1915 and has been recently renovated. The typeface on all signs at City hall is called City Hall and was hand drawn by the detail-oriented architect of City Hall – Arthur Brown Jr. The dome on San Francisco's City Hall is 16 feet higher than the capitol dome in Washington D. C.
The Beaux-Arts style Bill Graham Civic Auditorium occupies an entire city block, is four stories tall and is one of San Francisco's major convention venues hosting numerous concerts and public events throughout the year.
