The House that Politics Built: Parliament Aotearoa

Part 2 Dissertation 2016

Parliament Aotearoa proposes a new parliamentary architecture located in the centre of Auckland City. Political events of the 2014 New Zealand election, and concepts from local and international political buildings, dictate the architecture of a new parliament complex – using the prioritisation of public amenity to facilitate democracy. Or that is the conceit; really the project deploys architecture as a satirical tool for the dissection of politics, consumerism and the media.
