Vancouver City Hall

As TT noted, this building is the 'perfect scale' - not too big, and not too imposing. Originally 'accused' of possessing oppressive (perhaps even 'facist') looks, you have to admit it does not come anywhere near the 'grandeur' of the Soviet White House in Moscow.

But it still has enough deco beauty to evoke images of Gotham city every now and then...
