I really like Britain, Brazil, Canada (biased), and Bangladesh.

Australia - though I'm not too keen on bits of it up close, like the entrance, the complex as a whole is really interesting.

I haven't gone through all the pages, but a personal favourite of mine is the Palast der Republik of East Germany. Sadly, it has been demolished.

Ancient Parlament House of Alsace-Lorraine, when Alsace-Lorraine (also known as Elsass-Lothringen) was a german federate state.

This building is located in the historical capital of the land : Strasbourg and is used today as a national theatre (Théatre National de Strasbourg).

Small country (230 kilometers from Metz to Mulhouse), short story (1871-1918) and... little Parlament House !



Don't know what country I'm talking about ? See here :

The New Zealand Parliament is so lame. It's half finished, and rather than completing the unfinished wing in a sympathetic modern design, they tack on a ugly 1970's round thing that is locally known as the beehive.



The lower house.



The no longer used Legislative Council chamber of upper house. The upper house was removed in 1951.







Foyer.



The interior is cramped and poorly designed that has had to be renovated multiple times to meet current modern parliamentary functions.

What a gross waste of money.

Bulgaria's Nation's assembly (narodno subranie) = parliament

It's far from the so bigger and architectural jewels shown so far in this topic, but it;s still a parliament building with it's own beauty and history
Narodno subranie (Nation's assembly) in Sofia:



With the monument of Tsar Osvoboditel (Freeing king?) and the St. Alexander Nevski Cathedral behind it:
