The design posits that all parts contribute to creating singluar vision and form as it relates to the constitutional process of it's citizens voting.
The community centric design has the power to transform this district by engaging pedestrians, providing access to the largest open space in the city, and delighting Parliament members and visitors with enhanced spaces for civic engagement, collaboration, entertainment and public reflection. It stands as an enduring reminder of how closely connected the government and citizens are and can endeavor to become.
The architecture challenges traditional typologies and provides an iconic form that is progressive and forward thinking. The building form is intended to present a front door and offer equitables views from all vantage points around National Heroes Park, the largest public park in Kingston, Jamaica.
