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.
