In other cities, the city hall is simply a building, but in Utrecht the local city hall is a collection of buildings at the Stadhuisbrug (bridge), which crosses the Oudegracht. The current building complex is the result of countless renovations over the centuries. Various statue groups symbolise the functions of the city council: Justice, Vigilance, Authority, Policy and Faith. During the latest renovation, Spanish architect Enric Miralles turned the complex into what it is now. Not much remained of the neo-classicist building apart from the outer walls and the entrance hall. Miralles did add new parts to the rear of the complex in a deconstructivist style.
