The most interesting aspect of this building is clearly its completely circular design.

The Landtag Nordrhein-Westfalen building

Controversial and loved.

This unusual circular building was inaugurated on the 2nd of October 1988 and was the first German building deliberately built to be the North Rhine-Westphalia Parliament. The design was chosen through a competition, where they chose the most modern and avant-garde option. Although its construction was controversial due to its high budget, the building gained an overwhelming acceptance from the city’s residents. The strangest part of the building is the fact that it does not have any angles. Everything is circular, in order to symbolize its conciliatory nature. Even its plenary hall is circular, with over 300 seats facing each other. This architecture is based on the idea that everyone in the room is able to see everything around them. Although this room is only open to the public at certain times of the year, the rest of the building can be visited freely.
