dc.description.abstract In civic architecture, public assembly space has become completely separated from the representational space of government. At the same time, political theorists have noted a proliferation of groups and issues that are not being adequately represented in political discourse. Parliament/Park is an attempt to imagine a collective space for the metropolis that supports a multitude of simultaneous and successive activities. Drawing on a pair of historical precedents—Cedric Price's Fun Palace and Prouvé's Maison du Peuple de Clichy—it uses transforming elements to provide programmatic opportunities for a great variety of public activities. As a para-legislative space, it would be a microcosm of political representation.
