According to me London's City Hall is the best city hall in the world. City Hall is located specifically in the Greater London Authority, the local government in London. Foster Design, on the south bank of the Thames near Tower Bridge is an iconic building on purpose.

Toronto's City Hall really stands out from the crowd; there's nothing quite like it. It will become more appreciated a few decades from now as architecture from that era starts being viewed more from a heritage point of view. It's still too new to be valued the way it should.

Buffalo has a very impressive Art Deco inspired city hall. Pic by me.



Speaking about Toronto, I like both it's existing and old city halls...also my pics.

Wow, I didn't know the Roman city hall is on the Capitol Hill. I only knew of the Capitolin Museums being there.

My top would easily be Brussels, Paris and Rome, but unlike other eurocentrics I also like many North American city halls, especially those from Philadelphia, LA, SF, etc. But they simply can't match the combination of architectural heritage and great urban context that the old European city halls have (especially those in western Gothic city centres or in Italy).

Way too intricate for my taste. This is one case where 'less is more'.

It's Leuven, Löwen is the German name, but it is a Dutch speaking and not a German city.

What a unfair subject lol, too many styles and variables to consider. How can Paris' or Madrid's compare to some for example.

Anyhow, here's a few pic's of Los Angeles' City Hall.

Modern/Highrise: 1) Tokyo, 2) Toronto (new city hall)
Modern/Lowrise: 3) Santiago, Chile 4) The Hague
Old/Highrise: 5) Buffalo
Old/Lowrise: 6) Leuven/Löwen

I should add that I have a preference for modern looking architecture, which's why the older ones I picked don't make top 3.

Also, I'm really surprised at how beautiful the one in Chile is. I had never even heard of it before. As for London's "City Hall," I think it is severely overhyped and doesn't deserve all the attention it gets.
