Architectural Model


The design was a finalist in an architecture contest

The second version of the contest design for the Parliamentary Centre is also New Classical in style. While in the first draft the composition was dominated by the dome, the second draft is focused around a turret, which by its architecture resembles Stalin’s Empire style. Façades design is more laconic, and also includes a modern version of some neoclassical elements.
