The Parliament House of Singapore is a public building and cultural landmark and houses the Parliament of Singapore. It is located in the Civic District of the Downtown Core within Singapore's central business district (the Central Area). Within its vicinity is Raffles Place, which lies across it from the Singapore River, and the Supreme Court's building across the road. The building was designed to represent a contemporary architectural expression of stateliness and authority. The prism-shaped top, designed by the late former president Ong Teng Cheong, was similarly a modernist take on the traditional dome.

Introduction

In order to find an adequate design for a new parliament building in the early 1990s, the unicameral assembly assigned a Committee on the Parliament Complex Development Project to consult with architects. The parliamentary committee made overseas visits to the Parliament House in Canberra, Australia and to parliamentary buildings in Europe to incorporate some role models in the new design.
