More about City Hall

City Hall Architecture

City Hall’s award winning architecture was designed by Edmonton architect Gene Dub and opened on August 28, 1992. Gene Dub’s design combines the old with the new by incorporating some of the materials such as marble and   granite from the old City Hall into the new building. It is also designed as a ‘people place’ - a place for civic government and a gathering place for Edmontonians.
