Here's my city's town hall in Surakarta (or famously called Solo), Central Java, Indonesia. You might recognize its traditional architecture is based from Javanese-house style, mainly made from wood.

Boston's old city hall
My goodness. That new city hall structure looks ugly.

What happened to the old but much better looking city hall building now?
