Full Description

Philippe Samyn, architect and engineer, created with this building for the European Council an architectural masterpiece. Clever in its entirety and in every detail, in its iconic functions, and in its decorum, it perfectly reflects the aura of power that the 28 members of the European Union share together. In addition to Jean Attali and Philippe Samyn’s view on the building phases, this book also includes the overall picture of the project. All the phases of the building process as well as the facilities are dealt with. Text in English, Dutch and French.
