From the architect. Following the success of the Hansjörg Göritz Architekturstudio in an international European competition of the year 2000, seven years of planning and implementation are now completed. Today the built exterior and interior spaces manifest not only his interpretation of democratic separation of powers within the Alamannic cultural region of the Alps' Rhine River valley. They also stand for a conscious understanding of an architecture of urban contiguity, whereby the original masterplan of Luigi Snozzi has been newly reinterpreted.

At the same time the pure and meticulous materialization of the new context rejects generic easy conventions, and strive for an architecture of space and timelessness. It is this very elementary and sustainably durable quality that makes use of non-renewable resources according to rigorous Minergy-Standards. In the plenum the sublime art of Sabine Laidig creates a synthesis with this space creation of simplicity.

JS · March 01, 2012

Last year I had the opportunity to visit the new buildings of the Liechtenstein Parliament.
It was impressive to see how form and material by deliberate adding lend to the building size and dignity, to which the user can enjoy for a long time.
The consistent and above-average detail work with reduction on the essentials conveys the impression that own soul is inherent in the building.
The Liechtenstein Supreme House of Parliament is a remarkable urban design, integrating solitary state institutional buildings and restructuring the government district at the same time.
With the present result, it certainly also show that conceptual sketching in impressive pictures and typologies is capable to generate constructions with captivating dignity, that can and will exist for a long time, as these comprehend archetypical patterns to which the viewer can deeply relate.

Seems from the images, drawings and description to be an extraordinary project, rare in its clarity and restraint. I am rather curious though that a lot of the brickwork seems to be cladding rather than load bearing. The brickwork on the ceiling in the main debating chamber for example is brick-snap. Thoughts?

I had the opportunity to see the original hand drawings for this project and all the trash sketches that led to the final design in a show last year. The head architect behind this design is currently a visiting professor at the University of Tennessee. He is absolutely amazing to talk to about architecture. If I am not mistaken, he told me that his father worked with bricks, hence the amazing attention to detail.

Brandon McCloy · September 14, 2012 04:06 AM

If I'm not mistaken Hansgoerg is a master mason himself, and I have had the honor of having him as a design and detail professor. He has the uncanny ability to solve any detail problem in the most elegant, ingenious way possible.

This is amazing!

The attention to detais is incredible, even the retaining wall is thoroughly designed.

Top notch work.

i visited this place a year ago and it was great experience. very nice atmosphere, not brutal for shure, elegant details, and no fake stuff. building, publick space and even parking... ...everything elegant and very well designed

dimis · June 07, 2010

I visited the place six months ago. This project is really great!

Todd · June 04, 2010

Yes, I concur, timeless and outstanding!

WOWOWO!!!

æon · June 03, 2010

if those are really bricks, they give an engineering work which is nice to appreciate, and even more with ornamentation lack spaces and lines so clean. The size of the "triangle" with an upper acute angle and no windows, makes a difference in the place

three zed · June 05, 2010 02:08 PM

Yes, those are really bricks, Weinerberger brick company published this project some time ago. They have a prize for brick buildings, and this is the 2010 winer.

Seems a hokey pastiche of 1950's, early 60's contextualism/empiricism with Arne Jacobsen detailing.

One of the very best buildings on the site...
When you think of what the Scottish Parliament's says about its Government - excess and gaseous verbosity expressed by Miralles' architecture, the people from this tiny principality have created a project of unparalleled strength from the most mundane of building materials.
Now I do not profess to be knowledgeable in the principalities style of traditional architecture, but in the dark recesses of my mind I have some recognition of the steeply pitched roofs and strips of small horizontal windows. This is tradition continued and translated in a most imaginative form.
That this building lives equally with the grandeur of the original carved stone buildings says much for its strength of design...
A great acheivement

Wow, what an unmitigated disaster. Beige brick on everything like poor 70's modernism! It looks like the awful kind of low-budget government buildings and schools and churches we have scores of in South Texas. Yikes.

R Goldschmidt · June 28, 2010 10:51 AM

By the way, 70's modernist? Come on Dude. Learn some history my friend. Looks more like Venturi, then Corbusier modernism.

H. Roark · June 03, 2010 01:02 PM

Well if thats crap architecture in south Texas I'm moving to Texas.
