Scottish Parliament Building

The striking Scottish Parliament Building in Edinburgh was designed by Spanish architect Enric Miralles (1955-2000) and built using oak, steel and granite.

The Scottish Parliament Building was built between 1999 and 2004 at huge cost and is located at the edge of the Old Town in Edinburgh near Palace of Holyroodhouse, Holyrood Park and Salisbury Crags.


The building is designed to represent the culture and identity of Scotland and its people and to blend in to the surrounding natural and physical environment.
