London designer Adam Nathanial Furman's Democratic Monument is a proposal for town halls around the UK that would feature bright tiles and a diverse mix of architectural styles.

As civic buildings, Democratic Monument would be a brightly-coloured combinations of styles and materials, reflecting the unique combinations of communities that make up different cities around the country.

The town hall would house offices, chambers for the local council, spaces for the mayor, libraries, galleries and halls for events and ceremonies.

Local soil, sand and stone could be incorporated into the building exterior by mixing it with the concrete to produce different colours that would act as a "vertical index" of the region.

"The idea is that the architecture acts as an armature, or a framework for the display of a multitude of different, locally representative artworks," Furman told Dezeen.

"It would ideally be a full gamut representing the different schools, or approaches to art in a given city at a given time – a visualised cross-section through the creative life of a city in built form."

Music is by Vikrant Tike.
