Description

Opening in 1965, this structure replaced the Old City Hall and has been home to the Toronto City Council ever since. It sports a modernist design with two half-circle towers created by Viljo Revell, a Finnish architect chosen following a worldwide competition. The site is enhanced by a free-form bronze statue by Henry Moore, a peace garden with Japanese motifs and an eternal flame. Within city hall is a public area that can hold up to 300 spectators.
