It seems like you guys all like the old fashion crap. The city of The Hague has got a nice modern cityhall.

Crap? The only crap in this thread as of yet, is the city hall which you've just posted. It's a cheap monstrosity...

With that said, this sub-section is also called "Classic Architecture", is it not?

You got a point here. I just came into this topic via the mainscreen 'Architecture' and i didn't notice that it was in the sub-section classical architecture. Anyways, i'd prefer modern.

There's a shopping mall at city hall? That just doesn't seem right.

This is the old (built 1857) city hall in the City of Galt, now part of the City of Cambridge, Ontario, Canada. It's undergoing a well-needed renovation. The new one is just visible behind it to the left. The old one now houses the city archives.

The town hall at Whitby in North Yorkshire looks like it's on stilts! Sadly, I haven't got any pictures.
