JO Parliament


With the exception of green Italian marble, only indigenous materials were used for the costly and elaborate interior decorations of this Parliament building. The polygonal assembly chamber with its oak panelling spans a cupola with a width of 28 metres. In 1999, the building was modernised both technically and structurally under the auspices of Sigma Architects.
