Boston City Hall

Local nameBoston City Hall
LocationBoston, United States

Boston City Hall is the seat of city government of Boston, Massachusetts. It includes the offices of the mayor of Boston and the Boston City Council. The current hall was built in 1968 to assume the functions of the Old City Hall.

It is a controversial and prominent example of Brutalist architecture, part of the modernist movement. It was designed by Kallmann McKinnell & Knowles with Campbell, Aldrich & Nulty and LeMessurier Consultants.Together with the surrounding plaza, City Hall is part of the Government Center complex. This project constituted a major urban redesign effort in the 1960s, as Boston demolished an area of substandard housing and businesses.
