It's really hard to capture it in a pic because of the density of the surrounding skyscrapers.

It may look like a haunted house but I really like the architecture.

Didn't a French leader proclaim 'Vivre le Quebec libre' from that building?

Seoul City Hall #1

This narrow building was built in 1926 and still being used for Seoul's main city hall.

Seoul City Hall #2

The master plan of new Seoul City Hall has been rejected five times by Cultural Heritage Adminitration for lack of harmony with the neighborhood Deoksugung Palace... I think the administration is too strict.

These pictures are the master plans of new city hall Seoul government had submitted... but they were all rejected and other planning is still going on.

That's because HK's City Hall doesn't even function as one

Hong Kong is a city-state, hence the concept of national, provincial / state, and municipal governments is all meshed together. The centre of power lies in the Legislative Council and also the District Council.

If that's the case,

How about this. Much better than the HK's cityhall
