Edmonton City Hall

Right across the street from Sir Winston Churchill Square is the building where our mayor and city councillors work. It is actually a pretty unique looking building because the roof is made up mostly of two asymmetrical glass pyramids.

The cheapest and cleanest parking lot in downtown Edmonton is underneath City Hall. So I end up walking through there a lot – whenever I have to be downtown for something.
I guess it makes sense the the cleanest parking is under the building where the people who are in charge of the budget for cleaning the city streets work.

Cool parts: glass pyramid is lit up at night with different coloured lights and the wading pool out front is converted to a skating rink in the winter. The acoustics in side the main ‘city room’ are surprisingly lively, and a lot of public performances are held here.

Not so cool parts: During occasional strong wind storms, multiple panes of glass in the roof are known to crack and take forever to repair. (If the sign says “danger broken glass”, seriously, stay away.

City Hall was built in 1992 and was designed by a very well known local architect, Gene Dub. There is also a small restaurant and a 65 metre high clock tower on the grounds.
