Spaces, Seats, and Structure: Internal Architecture of the Capitol Building

The capitol building is designed to be a place of government. So, much like the government it houses, it has a highly complex structure.

Within the capitol building, there are numerous rooms that each serve different purposes. While studying the built environment of this location, I focused on two rooms that hearings were held in, specifically ones that were protested.

While both rooms were designed to hold groups of people, neither was intended to have many in attendance. Dimensions of each room, by rough estimations based on sight, were about 45 ft x 30 ft.
