Architect: Enric Miralles (†), Bar­celona

The Scot­tish Par­lia­ment was built according to the design of the Catalan architect Enric Miralles who died in 2000 and was opened by Queen Eliza­beth II in 2004. The striking roof is modelled on the upside-down hull of a ship. With the new par­lia­ment building, Miralles is inter­pre­ting con­text, tra­di­tion and local history using form and mate­rials. 
In 2005, the new par­lia­ment building was awarded the Stir­ling Prize, the coveted architectural prize of the Royal Insti­tute of Bri­tish Architects. This prize is awarded annu­ally and is regarded as the most pres­tigious award for con­tem­porary Bri­tish architecture.

GU solu­tion: the wilful mate­rials and forms pre­sented a very specific challenge in terms of equip­ment used for each specific window, for which our UNI-JET Tilt&Turn hard­ware was used
