Parliament



The starting point for this research, initiated by the Amsterdam-based office XML, is the curiosity around the relationship between space and power. This brick-size book documents and compares the nature of the parliament buildings of all 193 United Nations member states, showing their composition and architectural features.

The clear and clean structure of the book probably represents its strongest quality. The plan of the halls is always positioned on the right page, a choice that makes it easy for the reader to compare the different nations. On the left page, facing the maps, additional information is represented. Different indexes at the end of the book help to complete the picture and make further classifications.

Overall, the book stands out for the urgency and relevancy of its content, delivered with clarity and supported by a neat design. Three different but systematic covers are available.
