Aarhus City Hall Clock Tower at night, Denmark.

Aarhus City Hall Clock Tower. Architect: Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller.

Arne Jacobsen’s Aarhus City Hall (Århus Rådhus Bygning) was originally designed without a tower in 1942 but the people demanded a more monumental symbol for the most important building in their city. The resulting tower is 60m tall and the tower clock face has a diameter of 7m. The building is made of concrete plated marble from Porsgrunn in Norway. Architect: Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller.
