‘The shape of the assembly chamber functions socially and culturally in two distinct ways. At a semantic level, it challenges conventional symmetric forms that symbolise hierarchical political power; at a syntactic level, the chamber uses a simple and organic form to create a complex multi-layered series of spatial conditions […] thus representing the new form of participative democracy.’ Prof Alan Penn, Dean of Bartlett, UCL, 2003
