One day all towers and spires will take off (The City Hall)
Mai Hofstad Gunnes

The City Hall is part of a series of works titled One day all towers and spires will take off and it presents the realisation of a fictitious prophecy. The towers and spires take off and disappear through the clouds, like rockets leaving Stockholm’s City Hall transformed.
