Wikipedia

The Parliament House is the meeting place of the Parliament of Malta located in Valletta, Malta. The building was designed by Renzo Piano and opened on 4 May 2015. It cost more than €90 million to build. From 1921 to 1976, the meeting place of the Parliament of Malta was the Tapestry Chamber of the Grandmaster's Palace, also in Valletta. In 1976, the former armoury of the same palace was converted into a new parliament, and meetings were held there until the opening of the purpose-built Parliament House in 2015.

Introduction

In 2009 Renzo Piano started redesigning Valletta's city gate, which included the conversion of the ruins of the opera house into an open-air theatre and the construction of a new parliament building. This is supposed to be opened after the parliament's summer recess in fall 2014. The new parliament's façade creates an impressive visual impact through the pattern of thousands of stone panels, creating a structure both defensive and a fragile in character.
