Edmonton City Hall and fountains by 


Featured in The World As We See It, or as we missed it – Oct 16, 2011

City Hall’s main pyramid and fountain, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Edmonton’s City Hall was designed by Dub Architects, and completed in 1992. It features two steel and glass pyramids (designed to be evocative of the Rocky Mountains), one 43 meters high (ground to peak), on top of a three-story concrete structure. One pyramid provides natural light for the main atrium, the other for the council chambers. The building also features a 200-foot clock tower topped with a 25-bell carillon.
Located on the eastern edge of the financial district in Edmonton’s downtown, the building is the main feature on Sir Winston Churchill Square. In the winter, the fountain is converted to a skating rink.

    Nicely done,,did you have to wait for the fountain to cooperate? i still haven’t shot this!

  • No I didn’t have to wait. I just took a couple of shots. The lighting is not perfect as we were there almost at noon but no time to come back. Thank you Linda.

    Winnipeg should rethink ours eh?
    This is lovely hon, love the fountain and peaks

  • Definitely. We don’t have many water features in the city and they are working so great with architecture. Thank you hon, appreciate your kind words.
