Viljo Revell (January 25, 1910 – November 8, 1964) was a Finnish architect of the functionalist school. Internationally Revell is best known for designing the Toronto City Hall.
Born in Vaasa in 1910, he graduated upper-secondary final examination in 1928 from Vaasan Lyseo. He graduated as an architect from the Helsinki University of Technology in 1937. He married Maire Myntti in 1941; they had three daughters born in 1942, 1943 and 1945. He served as naval artillery officer in WWII, and he was one of the survivors of the sinking of the Finnish Navy flagship, the coastal defence ship Ilmarinen in 1941.

If you’re feeling far away from all the Rob Ford action in Toronto…

Check out Young & Giroux’s decidedly less drama-filled video work, Camera Tracking a Spiral Down the Two Curved Towers of Viljo Revell’s Toronto City Hall (2010), now on view as part of Y & G #12 (curtain walls).

The artists’ quiet and contemplative view of this building, which was designed to echo idealism of democracy in municipal politics, provides a stark contrast to everything that has happened so far
