The Mississauga Civic Centre architecture is based on a "futuristic farm" (the clock tower is the windmill, the main building is the farmhouse, the cylindrical council chamber is the silo, and the pentagonal building is the barn). It is a multi-purpose facility for both government and community use. Besides the government offices it contains a wedding chapel and conservatory. The courtyard contains a reflecting pool/ice rink and a garden.
