The Batasang Pambansa Complex is the headquarters of the House of Representatives of the Philippines. It is located at Batasan Road, Batasan Hills, Quezon City. The complex was initially the home of the Batasang Pambansa, the former parliament of the Philippines which was established as an interim assembly in 1978 and finally as an official body in 1984. Under the 1973 constitution, it replaced the bicameral Congress of the Philippines established under the 1935 Commonwealth constitution.

PH Parliament



Introduction

Until 1944, the parliament of the Philippines shared a neo-classicist building with the National Library. The new building project commencing in Quezon City in 1956 was never completed. In 1973, one year after Ferdinand Marcos had promulgated martial law, the building was demolished and replaced by a new building designed by Felipe Mendoza. Since the country’s 1973 constitution had solely made provision for a unicameral system, the building only offers enough room for the House of Representatives.
