The final design for the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh

  • Comment

The final design for the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh has been unveiled to reveal dramatic use of multiple heights and a cluster of pointed boat forms. Enric Miralles, working with Benedetta Tagliabue and rmjm, has firmed up the initial maritime feel of the plans and streamlined the design with zoning patterns. Buildings sit on either side of the retained Queensbury House to create a sense of enclosure on Holyrood. The other two main buildings are the msp base and the assembly building, entered through a vaulted foyer below the debating chamber. The scheme has been presented to Scottish Secretary Donald Dewar and work is due to start next summer for a finish in autumn 2001. Bovis is the construction manager.
