NZ Parliament


Large parts of this government building were destroyed by a fire in 1907. In 1912, civil servant and official architect John Campbell submitted two design projects he had designed together with two other colleagues, winning the first and fourth places. As a result of subsequent protest, Mr Campbell lost his membership in the chamber of architects. In 1922, however, he was able to complete his neo-Baroque/neoclassicism style building up to the central projection. Finally, in 1981, Sir Basil Spence finished off the complex by adding a part known as the "Beehive".
