The national parliament house in Canberra, Australia

Much different than the parliament buildings of other countries! I think it represents the youth of our nation in a totally unique Australian way.



View from the side, those grassed areas branch out into huge 'hills' down the side of the building




View of the old parliament in front, with the new parliament at the back with those huge hills visible

Actually, it was indeed built as a royal palace in the 1830s by the Bavarian architect Friedrich von Gärtner, but it was turned into a Parliament in the 1930's, not 1974!

For the last 2 centuries people have been complaining about its austerity! While it's not so remarkable when you see it today, there is a reason I think why the Parliament is so austere: in the 1830s -1840s it was the biggest building in Athens. It was the only structure "antagonizing" the Parthenon. Its heavy, archaic austerity complements the monuments of the Acropolis well.

Parliament of Serbia

Most cognizable by its use in the game Half - Life 2 ,as nexus overwatch

The Parliament building is in the city centre of Belgrade, on the Nikola Pašić Square, in front of Pioneer's park. Prior to its use for the of Serbia, it served as the seat of parliament for Yugoslavia. The building is shown on the five-Yugoslav dinar coin.

Construction on the building started in 1907, with the cornerstone being laid by King Peter I. The building was based on a design made by Konstantin Jovanović in 1891; a variant of that design made by Jovan Ilkić, which won a competition in 1901. World War I delayed construction, and the original plans to the building were lost. Reconstruction of the plans were made by Jovan's son Pavle. The interior was designed by Nikolaj Krasnov. It was designed in the manner of academic traditionalism.

A sculpture by Toma Rosandić, Igrali se konji vrani (Play of Black Horses), was placed in front of the building in 1939.

In Half- Life 2(as nexus overwatch),just without sculptures and some minor changes duo a needs of game.

How to show all the ignorance in one line, amazing.
Just look up a few things about how our government works, you might have a heart attack from what you will learn. I'll give you another hint: House of Representatives...
