European parliament vs European parliament

This is a poll between the two European Parliaments building.

The one in Brussels and the one in Strasbourg. You only judge the building itself, no politic please.

Strasbourg









Brussels

Brussels. Convert the Strasbourg one into a convention center for Christ's sake and end this traveling circus that is the movement of Parliament to France for a week!

Brussels.

I like the shape...very creative

Although the size of the Brussels building and the Strasbourg are far apart.
The Brussels one looks much smaller.

Does anyone have the dimensions of both?
Please post them if you do.

woops, sorry about that

Still, I prefer the Brussels one for architecture reasons over the Strasbourg one. Can't pin down why, Brussels just looks more pleasing to the eye.

I don't have the dimensions but the one of Strasbourg looks really bigger indeed.

The european parliament is only in Strasbourg. The building from Brussels is the european commission.

That being said I prefer the building in Strasbourg

I like strasbourg from the waterfront. not the other side.

I think brussels looks like a mall. So I'm gonna go with strasbourg.

just curious, are either of these buildings 'green'? always curious to know if agencies put there buildings where there mouth is.
