ARCHITECT: THOMAS TURNBULL (1899) Heritage New Zealand - Category 1

New Zealand Parliament's Parliamentary Library, formerly the General Assembly Library, is the oldest in the complex and was built in 1899 in the Gothic revival architectural style.
The third story that was part of the original design was not built to save money.
Because of its masonry construction and fire doors, the library servived the big fire of 1907 which destroyed the rest of the parliament buildings.
