Gensler has proposed moving the UK parliament into a floating bubble style building on London’s River Thames to reduce the cost of refurbishing the Palace of Westminster.

The world’s largest architectural firm wants to create a 250-metre-long and 42-metre-deep temporary structure from steel modules and a wooden frame clad in curved panels of glass to house both the House of Commons and House of Lords.

The components would be made by British shipbuilders before being transported along Thames and assembled on steel platforms next to Palace of Westminster.
