Making Parliament Public

‘Making Parliament Public’ proposes the relocation of the Commons Program of Parliament into the public realm. By releasing the commons from the confines of the Palace and placing it in a highly public, open place, the project demystifies the workings of Parliament. Elements of program that are currently intensely internal and embedded within the buttressed palace are to become external and accessible and need to be encased in some other way. The scheme achieves this by carving voids of programme; lobbies and debating chambers for example, out from a penetrable field of columns.
