The dark blue ceramic tiles on the City Hall’s facade glimmer and change their appearance in different light conditions. ”The facade must be that of the Seinäjoki City Hall and of nowhere else”, Aalto wrote in his reasoning for the material choice. In the tall, tower-like assembly hall of the city council, the councillors’ seats are placed radially across the room. The same layout is repeated in the building’s facade. The west wing of the City Hall was originally created as a living space and converted into office space in the 1970s and 80s.
Opening hours: Weekdays 9am–3pm
