The New Parliamentary Building - Portcullis House

The new parliamentary building, adjacent to the Palace of Westminster, provides offices and committee rooms for MPs. The location in a World Heritage site was an important factor in the design; equally significant was the presence below of the new Westminster underground station. J.A. Thornton, C.P. Dewy and D.M. Mitchell
