The new Parliament Complex in Tirana is a 40,000 square meters National Government building. The center of the project is the Parliament’s Plenary Hall, the seat of democracy. It has the shape of an Eagle’s nest in the heart of the public square. The auditorium is carved out in the ground like an antique amphitheatre. Above the nest the Albanian Eagle rises up to form a giant umbrella that protects the people under its wings. Public life takes place in the filtered daylight under this umbrella. The Parliament Office is a separate building shaped as a large grandstand that forms the backdrop of Parliament Square.
