As Canberra is the capital of Australia, with the Australian Capital Territory the central region for all of Australia’s government, it is also home to Australia’s Parliaments, Embassies, and Governmental offices. Most countries in allegiance with Australia have their embassies represented here. In the heart of this governmental sector is what is called the “Parliamentary Triangle” or the “ParTri” – the ceremonial precinct of Canberra. The triangle is formed by the Commonwealth, the Kings, and Constitution Avenues. Architecture and buildings within the triangle align in style to coordinate and complement the triangle for the visual effect and to create national significance making it a popular hotspot for tourists similar to that which one can find in Washington, D.C. The triangle was designed and planned for in Walter Burley Griffin’s original design for manifesting Canberra. The triangle is bordered at each point by the Parliament, the Defence Headquarters, and City Hill. He constructed it around two axes converging on the center with a land axis connecting Mount Ainslie, Capital Hill, Red Hill, and off towards Mount Bimberi. Water axis runs at right angles to the land axis along the length of Lake Burley Griffin whose southern shore bisects the Trinagle forming a smaller triangle known as the Parliamentary Zone which contains all the the significant buildings located in the Triangle. The streets in this triangle are lined with large deciduous trees and buildings inset with grassed parkland creating an open feel and convenience between offices. The Parliament House and the The Old Parliament House are the most significant features within it. Other contributing buildings are the National Library, the National Science and Technology Center, Commonwealth Park, Kings Park, Department of the Treasury, John Gorton Building, Department of Finance, Department of Environment and Water Resources, the National Rose Garden, and the Aborigine Tent Embassy. Canberra and Washington D.C. share design similarities as both consist of triangles that line up the House of Government with other monuments and landmarks. Within this area on the outskirts of the Triangle are various countrie’s Embassies.
