The massive 'Palace of the Parliament' in Bucharest, also known as the 'Republic's House' or 'People's House', is home to the Romanian Parliament of Romania. The mega building was ordered by Nicolae Ceausescu, designed and supervised by chief architect Anca Petrescu together with a team of roughly 700 architects who were kept busy over a period of 13 years (1984–1997) to complete it in Socialist Realist and Modernist Neoclassical architectural styles.
Tens of thousands of workers (estimations vary between 20000 and 100000) were necessary for the construction phase. Its total height is 84 m with a floor area of 365000 m2 and a volume of 2.5 million m3. It is the heaviest building in the world, weighing about 4.10 million tonnes and it is the second largest administrative building in the world.
In 2020, the building was valued at 4 billion Euro, making it the most valuable administrative building in the world with costs of heating, electricity, and lighting alone exceeding half a million Euro every month.
