The proposal is for a new Regional Assembly building for the East Midlands. The building is composed of a collection of individual buildings arranged around different gardens or coutyards, each of which has its own distinct character. The complex is constructed around the individual viewpoint and is designed to be experienced as a visual sequence with the buildings and their gardens variously choosing to conceal and reveal different parts of themselves. t.

The wall surfaces are decorated with frescoes and painted screens that retail the story of the building and its context to the visitor. Politics can be deceptive and the building wilfully deceives: it seeks to separate itself from it direct locally. It exits as a dislocate object, or arrangement of objects, which act to spatially and temporally displace its inhabitants from their context.
