The Singapore Parliament

 

  The new Singapore Parliament House was opened on 6 September 1999. Its official opening was on 4 October 1999. Work on the new building started in 1994 and was completed in 1999. The old Parliament House at High Street sits back to back with the new building. 

  The new building occupies a ground area of 2.2 hectares. It comprises three new blocks and an old building that was built in 1864. Its garden spans 2770 square metres. Among the facilities are a 170-seat auditorium, a 100-seat cafeteria, a gymnasium, an underground carpark, a library and a members' room.

  Three old items from the old Parliament House grace the new building. These are: the Mace, made in 1959; the Speaker's Chair and the Table of the House, made in 1988.
