House of European History

How can the history of a continent and an idea be brought together in a new place?

Located in Brussels, in the European quarter, in the heart of Leopold Park, the House of European History was inaugurated in 2017. The competition for the renovation and extension of a historic museum building - formerly the Institut dentaire George Eastman- was won in 2011 by Chaix & Morel et Associés and JSWD Architekten. Under the direction of Sophie Trelcat, the book House of European History, designed by graphic designers Baldinger and Vu-Huu, presents the history of the architectural project, from its conception to its completion.
