Scottish parliament research papers

The Parliament is actually a campus of several buildings, reflecting different architectural styles, with a total floor area of 31,000 square metres (312,000 sq ft), [30] providing accommodation for MSPs, their researchers and parliamentary staff. The buildings have a variety of features, with the most distinctive external characterisation being the roof of the Tower Buildings, said to be reminiscent of upturned boats on the shoreline. [31] The inspiration had come from Edwin Lutyens ' sheds, made from upturned herring busses (boats) which Miralles saw on a visit to Lindisfarne in Northumberland . [32] It is said that in the first design meeting, Miralles, armed with some twigs and leaves, thrust them onto a table and declared "This is the Scottish Parliament" [33] reinforcing the unique and abstract nature of the parliamentary campus.
