Ideals of Ancient Greece reflected in German citizen centre

A building to host press conferences and exhibitions next door to the parliament
in Stuttgart, Germany, has been constructed by Henning Larsen Architects.

The Citizen and Media Centre is shaped like a large amphitheatre as a tribute to
the Ancient Greeks and their ideals of democracy.

It consists of a foyer, conference spaces and exhibition rooms and can be closed
off from the parliament building if necessary.

Its designers say they also took inspiration from the surrounding landscape, which
is an urban park.
