The architecture of parliament buildings is the focus of Austria’s contribution to the 14th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice. Curated by Christian Kühn and Harald Trapp, and entitled Plenum. Places of Power, the show in the Austrian pavilion presents over 200 national parliament buildings from around the world. Modeled at a scale of 1:500 and hanging on the walls of the exhibition space, the visitor can easily compare the size and the design of the different buildings. The buildings are ultimately an expression of national identity, their style ranges from modest to monumental, from minimalist to opulent.
