Kitchener City Hall, Kitchener

Kitchener City Hall, Kitchener

The City Hall of Kitchener has gone through many iterations through the 20th century, culminating in the current building, which opened in 1993. The textures of the building are varied. Much of both the interior and exterior is in red sandstone imported from India; domestic granite makes up pavement and floors. A unique feature is the “green wall”; passing from the south on a parallel with Gaukel Street, this bulwark of green stone continues, at various heights, through the square and building across the entire block. The council chamber is a modern, approachable space, where the mayor and councillors sit at a circular furnishing, surrounded by staff facilities and observed by the visitors' gallery. The building's rotunda hosts many events, from art exhibits to public gatherings.
