American architecture and design company Gensler has gone ahead and proposed an innovative and eye-catching parliament building concept, intended for the UK parliament, that would see the building located in a modular bubble-shaped building on the water, which would allow parliament to carry on its business while its current home, the Palace of Westminster, undergoes necessary repairs and renovations.
Dubbed 'Project Poseidon', this parliament building concept would make use of prefabricated structures and would feature a striking glazed design that is inspired by parts of the Westminster Hall building. While the building's renderings might make it seem expensive, moving parliamentary proceedings here could reduce the cost of renovations to the original parliament substantially.
This parliament building concept is a great example of temporary architecture being leveraged to promote savings.
