Programme

Hemicycle and offices for the Head Office of the European Parliament including a hemicycle of 750 seats, 1133 offices for the members of Parliament, 18 commission halls of 50 to 350 seats, catering centre and services. The architecture is a metaphor of the European Culture ongoing and its history, and of the democratic institutions carrying it.

The edifice expresses the foundations of the Western civilization: Classicism and Baroque, from Galileo’s to Kepler’s ellipse, the transition from a central geometrical structure (Galileo) to the anamorphosis (Borromini) and the ellipse (Kepler, Gongora), showing the constant motion expressing the evolution of the institutions, evolving from central power to a democratic organization.

The European Parliament stands as an autonomous positive landmark. Its conception and structure follow the morphology of the environment, from the city to Europe: the context in the broadest meaning.
