The Parliament of Singapore is the legislative institution of the country. It is located at 1 Parliament Place, in the Civic District of the Downtown core, directly opposite the other branch of government, the Judiciary. The building was constructed between 1995 and 1999 to reflect a contemporary architectural expression of authority. The prism-shaped top, designed by former president Ong Teng Cheong (1936-2002), was an intentional modernist take on the traditional dome. When the building was ready, there was a walkover of MPS from the old Parliament building. The Parliament of Singapore is composed of the President, MPs and NMPs (nominations members of Parliament). It is largely based on the Westminster system. Members of the public can also enter Parliament through a side entrance. Inside there are historical artefacts about Singapore’s politics and a gift shop. It is also possible to view proceedings in the chamber.
