Aarhus City Hall is a modern, functionalistic building that houses the municipality of Aarhus and hosts major events throughout the year.
The building was inaugurated on 2 June 1941 and designed by renowned architects Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller. Hans Wegner was in charge of the furnishing – which is uniquely designed to fit the building – and parts of the interior design.
The building is made of concrete and plated with 6,000 m² of grey marble from Porsgrunn in Norway. On the outside, copper is used for many architectural details, signified by the characteristic green verdigris. The interior is more luscious in its expression with oak parquet floors, ceramic tile floors in various patterns, specially designed wooden furniture, glass walls, wooden walls and large wall paintings and decorations. Inside, brass and bronze is used for metal architectural details.
As one of just a few Danish city halls, it was marked for preservation in March 1994 because of its unique architecture and design. In January 2006, the city hall was included in the Danish Culture Canon under architecture. It is recognised by many as an important symbol of Aarhus and Danish architecture.
