The European ParliamentReturn
Its 750-seat debating chamber, completed in 1999, is designed to host this institution’s monthly sessions.
The architecture of the building designed by Architecture Studio Europe is based on a combination of circles and ellipse, with the Parliament building being organised into several clearly identified areas:
- A wing shaped building. From this "wing" emerges the dome of the hemicycle debating chamber, designed for 750 MEPs,
- A 60 m high tower including 17 floors and 1 133 offices,
- Work place, communication and social areas.
The building has three internal "streets", with the main one featuring a winter garden including a forest of philodendrons.
