Vancouver City Hall is the epitome of the term. Huge, stately, majestic. Just one quick look at it and the function of the building comes to mind in an instant coz the design resonates with power and control. Other examples, mostly European, are beautiful in themselves but they feel more like palaces or churches.
Toronto is good too, though its design befits a hotel, imo.

I see what you mean but in Paris true grandeur was reserved for the kings, which is why the Louvre is the most imposing building / complex. And after the the regimes changed, there was always an eye kept on the republic's representatives so that they don't lose it and behave kingly.

The one in Toronto actually reminds me of the Vienna International Center, seat of the UN in Vienna.

I know you can't compare this one with European city halls, but here we go.

La Plata, Argentina

I like the combination of different materials like stone and glas between the old Building (1899) and the new Bersword Hall (2000)
