BE Parliament



Introduction

The neoclassicist "Palace of Nations" was built by the French architect Gilles-Barnabé Guimard. Charles Alexander of Lorraine commissioned him in 1768 to plan the levelling of the site of Coudenberg Palace, that had been devastated by a blaze in 1731. Guimard thus already began work on this area in 1770, that would later be the new centre of government in Brussels.
