The new centre consists of a foyer, conference spaces and exhibition area, all visually connected to the outside agora. For security purposes, these areas can be closed off from the parliament building itself. This separation also makes it possible possible to host larger events at late hours, without compromising the parliament building.
The new Citizen and Media Centre is located in Stuttgart Castle Park and creates a new public space in the urban park. The surrounding landscape and ample daylight have provided inspiration for the design of the new building. Special cylindrical windows create a bright and friendly atmosphere, and filter the daylight, giving visitors the impression of walking under a big tree.
