Architecture competition — European Parliament — The Paul-Henri SPAAK building in Brussels
The Spaak building is the main building of the European Parliament. It houses the hemicycle and the main reception facilities for citizens, the media and official visitors.
The future building will be integrated and connected to its urban, natural and social environment.
It aims to be sustainable, sustainability being measured in terms of operability, maintainability, flexibility and adaptability. Flexibility must be envisaged in space, time and techniques. The building and its development process must incorporate the best practices of durability and sustainability, balanced between simplicity and thoughtful technology. The renewal project aims for a positive environmental impact.
The purpose of the competition is to enable the European Parliament to select the project which best meets its needs.
At the end of a design competition, the European Parliament will confirm the choice of a winning architectural concept. This winning architectural concept will be studied at a pre-project level, and will be integrated into the requirements programme of the project under development.
The European Parliament will initiate a negotiated procedure with the author of this architectural concept with a view to signing an architectural services contract for assistance until the completion of the project.
The Parliament plans to initiate a competitive dialogue type procedure which will enable the designation of an operator who will carry out the Design & Build project.
