We can’t imagine Mississauga City Hall looking any other way than it does now, but what could it have looked like?

On April 22, 1982, the City of Mississauga invited architects from across Canada to participate in a national architectural competition where one architect’s design for the new City Hall and the civic square would be chosen to be built in the City Centre.

The competition generated 240 Canadian competitors, and the photos below are from the 5 finalists, one of which is the City Hall as we see it today:
