Okay, I'll start this off.

This is London's City Hall. The mayor Ken Livingstone works here.

Situated on the South Bank, near Tower Bridge, this building was designed by Norman Foster and built in 2002.

Some history:

In 1963, Malaysia was created and the announcement, led by Lee Kuan Yew took place here.

Aaah!!! They're all so great.

Maybe we should have a seperate competition for European City Halls, Asian City Halls, and Western City Halls.
