Existing Parliament Buildings from Around the World

Having looked at a variety of parliament buildings from several different countries these are the common themes I have found

Physical:

Columns

Circular

Grand

Towers

Differences throughout existing Parliament Buildings

Physical:

Evolve from Gothic to angular but still with influences from previous parliament buildings, eg. Columns and arches

Problems with the site based on required building

The size of the site will require a many storied structure so as to fit all the required functions into it.

Also many of the surrounding buildings are historic so it would be difficult to obtain planning permission but also the structure would have to remain within the footprint of the building already in place.
