The Rotes Rathaus is one of those unique, iconic buildings, you see it once and it gets impressed in your memory.


Many hate it, but I've always appreciated the early functionalist design of Oslo City Hall:

Vancouver City Hall


image hosted on flickr

Vancouver City Hall - 1936 by Bob_2006, on Flickr

uilt in 1935-36 as a symbol of Vancouver’s growth. City Hall is a prime example of Moderne Design. Its geometric silhouette, stylized bands of ornamentation, elegant light fixtures and ornate lobby are characteristic of this style. The building is constructed of reinforced concrete clad with granite and sandstone. It is sited in a formal park-like landscape in what was Strathcona Park. This central location was selected following the amalgamation of Point Grey, Vancouver and South Vancouver in 1929. In 1968-70, the same architectural firm designed the East Wing addition on Yukon Street.
