Pyramids on the Prairies: Edmonton's city hall marks 25th anniversary
from CBC News
Edmonton's city hall, which celebrated its 25th anniversary recently, could have looked much different than it does today. Instead of its striking glass pyramids, the original building designs included teepees to recognize the local Indigenous population. But many at the time thought the design wouldn't properly represent Edmonton. One councillor even thought the teepees would look like dunce caps — making a mockery of municipal politicians. Current and former politicians and members of the public filled the hall for an event which also drew the building's architect, Gene Dub.
