Sleek . . . Like a Herman Miller Chair
nov. 2020
From an architectural standpoint, Vancouver City Hall is a lovely example of art deco. Made primarily of granite and concrete, the building displays a soft sheen as it sits upon its hill. The interior is equally impressive. Highlighting Vancouver’s connection with its natural environment, the woodwork takes center stage. You can tell that this monolith, opened in 1936, was built to impress. It is, after all, the seat of Vancouver’s power. Speaking of which, you’ll enjoy the Council Chambers, which are located on the third floor. The simple woodwork, framed by art deco-style light fixtures gives the impression of serious, contemplative thought . . . on Herman Miller Chairs.

There are currently some renovations going on at City Hall – apparently to help erase some “culturally inappropriate” settings. I don’t know about that. Being postcolonial is great and all, but Vancouver rests on the unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. Reconciliation means more than just removing a few old pictures and modifying the look of a room.

Now, if only Vancouver would see fit to put a few Herman Miller chairs outside so that we might observe and appreciate City Hall in sheer ergonomic bliss.

Interesante edificio para fotografiar; su explanada otorga una vista panorámica del paisaje urbano. Cuenta con un jardín de especies autóctonas. Muy cerca del Whole Foods Market.

Situated up on a hill looking back down town, City Hall is a stylish piece of 1930s architecture, surrounded by pleasant gardens.

Well located and with tours
nov. 2017 • Familie
This iconic building is located along 12th Av, close to the Canada Line sky train (from the airport). It has amenities close by and an inside tour is a must. It has historical portraits of Vancouver from the old days, and you may even meet the premier!

Hermoso edificio Art-decó
jun. 2017
La sede del Ayuntamiento de Vancouver está situado en una colina. Es un edificio estilo art-decó, de líneas simples, con doce pisos, una torre con un reloj y una estatua de George Vancouver.
En la parte de atrás tiene unos jardines hermosos y bien cuidados y hay cerca una parada del Skytrain.

不知是不少電影的景點之一
mai 2016 • Alene
如果不是要去附近的餐廳吃飯的話,我可能不會經過這里,當然更不能知道原來它在一些電影場景里都出現過的市政廳在這里,因為它真的太過低調了,雖然不知道它是否有開放,但我覺得遊客來此估計都是經過看看外觀,那樣其實也很足夠,真的有氣勢的建築和看過最特別應該是渥太華的國會大廈,這里可能很很多市政廳的外觀神似,或許你不會感到它的有其它的不同,有的可能也象我這樣,順便經過看看.

這里離33街有幾條街之遠,如果你到伊莉沙白公園的話,可在在奧林匹亞站下車順著大道走就能在左手邊看到這市政廳,它不算是特別大家來溫哥華的景點,但我會比較建議走法可以先在奧林匹亞站下車搭車去到公園之後再從那里搭巴士在離站前一站下車後再徙步前往,那麼它就在你的右手邊,之後再慢慢步行回到車站搭車即可.

Art Deco Gem
nov. 2016 • Par
I consider this sleek Art Deco high rise, which opened in 1936, to be a worthwhile stop for architecture buffs. Constructed of reinforced concrete and clad with granite and sandstone, the building displays simple, clean lines. It stands out because of its hillside location in an area of much lower structures. On frequent visits to Vancouver, I often admired the city hall's exterior but never was nearby when it is open (Monday through Friday) to see the interior.

On my recent Vancouver stay, I made it a point to finally go inside, and what a treat awaited. The ornate lobby shows off fine craftsmanship and rich materials, especially in the use of marble and wood. I really liked the beautiful inlaid wood design in the elevators and it was in one of the elevators that an employee suggested that I visit the third floor. There I found wood-paneled walls, the mayor's office and photographs of an earlier-era Vancouver on the walls. Other displays include the City of Vancouver mace, received as a gift from the City of London to mark Vancouver's 50th birthday. On this floor, the rich woodwork continues in the city council chamber, which was locked when I was there. But I enjoyed looking through the glass door at the beautiful space, complete with Art Deco lighting fixtures.

We entered the building on the south side and exited on the north, where an 8-foot-high statue of Captain George Vancouver, after whom the city is named, stands. I captured my favorite exterior picture of the building here with the statue in the foreground. Steps lead down from the statue to park-like grounds with benches and towering trees. The City Hall Community Garden is in this area, but the various plots looked a bit scraggly in November.

Vancouver City Hall is about a 2-minute walk uphill from the Sky Train's Broadway City Hall station.
