The winning design proposes solid, innovative, efficient and forward-looking solutions to replace our old buildings on the Loi 130 site.” 

Brussels-Capital Region Minister-President Rudi Vervoort said: “We are very pleased with the outcome of the competition. Thanks to very constructive cooperation between the European Commission and the Brussels-Capital Region, this emblematic competition resulted in a project that represents a significant milestone in the implementation of our own Projet Urbain Loi that aims at finding sustainable, energy efficient solutions for the redevelopment of the European quarter of Brussels”. The winning project was chosen based on a decision of the competition jury composed of internationally renowned architects and engineers, as well as representatives of the Commission and the Brussels-Capital Region. With the Loi 130 project, the Commission is playing its part in the efforts of the Brussels authorities to make the European quarter a more attractive place to live, work and visit.
