The architecture of the new city gate is very restrained, giving an impression of strength and austerity, stripped of extraneous decoration that would undermine its timeless, honest quality. A new ‘hard stone’ quarry on Gozo was opened up specifically to provide stone for this project. The stone use for the Parliament’s facades has been sculpted by a numerically controlled machine. The result is a stone architecture that is fitting for its historic context but also the product of cutting-edge technology.
