Aarno Ruusuvuori designed the modernisations of the City Hall, which were completed in 1970 and 1988. Anitra Lucander was in charge of the colour design. Take a look at the 1970s and 1980s and find out what the modernisations included.
The interior of the City Hall underwent a complete overhaul during a 1970 renovation spearheaded by the modernist architect Aarno Ruusuvuori. At the end of the 1980s, Ruusuvuori also built a restaurant and a new City Council Chamber in the City Hall block. Today, the Helsinki City Hall is considered an icon of modern Finnish architecture.
The City Hall underwent a complete renovation in the 1990s, as the building services engineering had reached its end of the road. We present the implementation of the renovation and the breath of fresh air in the 2000s.
