The Canadian Parliament Buildings are one of the world's most important examples of the Modern Gothic Revival style of architecture. The Centre Block houses the House of Commons and Senate chambers and is fronted by the iconic Peace Tower. The original Parliament Buildings were built between 1859 and 1866, however the Centre Block was re-built and completed in 1922 after a devastating fire destroyed the original building in 1916. The Peace Tower was added later in 1927.
