In this book, architecture office XML explores the double-sided relationship between space and politics by documenting and comparing the plenary halls of the parliaments of all 193 United Nations member states.
Comparing settings between East and West, North and South, democratic and authoritarian regimes, the book addresses the plenary halls of parliament as more than mere ornamental, symbolic representations of national values, taking them seriously as actors in the shaping of future times.
