A space once longing to the exposition park of architecure in 1930 and the L'Atomium and a stadium for the Universal Expo in 1958 becomes the "Quartier du Heysel" in Brussels which currently misses coherence and urban character.

The primary objective and challenge is to create a new lively and animated district to in essence, initiate a new economic dynamism, ecological residencies acessible to everyone and offer a new tourist destinations including leisure and shopping centers. The Europea project is a new piece of Brussels unique in its program and exemplary in its design.
