Bureau Architecture Méditerranée has unveiled the design for the new Parliament of Algeria, a complex including buildings for the People's National Assembly, the National Council (Senate), the Chamber (Congress), and a residence for legislators. The buildings are organized around a large public plaza, "a symbolic gathering place for the free people who give the republic its legitimacy and authority," on a site that connects the historic and modern parts of the city.
