Designed by French architect Henry Bernard and inaugurated in 1977, the Palais de l’Europe is the Council of Europe’s principal building. Its entrance is flanked by the flags of all the Council’s member states. The outer layer of the Palais is a mosaic of contrasted colours, which are found on the concrete of the buttresses, the aluminium-covered façade and the vast windows of the conference rooms respectively. In front of the Palais the lawn was once the site of the predecessor to the Palais de l’Europe – the Maison de l’Europe.
