SL Parliament



Introduction

The parliament building in Sierra Leone was bankrolled by Israeli loans at the wake of the independence of the country. The architectural firm Karmi, Melzer & Karmi was commissioned with the design of the building, which blends into its surroundings using red stone that was excavated from the very hill of the building. Dov and Ram Karmi were also involved in the design of the "Knesset", the Israeli parliament.
