Palace of the City of Brussels

Palace of the City of Brussels at the Exhibition Ghent 1913

The Brussels palace was admirable in its exterior appearance and interior layout. The architect did not depart from the general form of the 16th-century Brabant style out of whim.

He had sought his inspiration in the town hall, the King's house, the old Amigo and the old Halles; the whole was harmonious. Inside, the administrations of the municipalities of the Brussels conurbation had clearly and methodically set out the common services of hygiene, health and public safety. A well-designed and furnished hall of honour held the visitors spellbound by its lines and decor.
