CH Parliament


The Swiss "Bundeshaus" is a fine example of late 19th century parliamentary building design. With a combination of monumental gesture, materials from all Swiss cantons and reflection of national myths in its architecture and interior painting, this building represents a national monument to honour the unification of the Swiss Confederation.
