OM Parliament



Introduction

Inspired by Omani tradition, Moller Architects' entry won the internationally tendered competition for the design of "Majlis Oman". This 750 million dollar project was completed within three years. Its main structural elements consist of massive load-bearing walls with small-format openings in order to reduce the impact of solar radiation as well as for security reasons.
