The buildings of the Parliament are among the most important examples of the Gothic Revival style anywhere in the world; while the manner and design of the buildings are unquestionably Gothic, they resemble no building constructed during the Middle Ages. The forms are the same, but their arrangement is uniquely modern. The Centre Block (behind me) contains the Senate and Commons chambers, and is fronted by the Peace Tower on the south façade. The Library of Parliament – which we visited last week – is at the building's rear.
The East and West Blocks each contain ministers' and senators' offices. This is where Noelani is interning with a real senator!
And tomorrow I will visit the office where she is working!
