In accordance with the provisions of Regulation (EC, Euratom) 2018/1046 of the European Parliament
and of the Council of 18 July 2018 on the financial rules applicable to the general budget of the Union1
and of Annex 1 thereto, the European Parliament has decided to launch this competition for detailed
sketches from architects for the renewal of the Paul-Henri Spaak Building in Brussels.
The European Parliament:
Since 1979 the European Parliament has been the institution democratically representing all European
Union citizens.
It comprises 751 MEPs, elected by direct universal suffrage in the 28 countries of the European Union,
who exercise legislative and budgetary powers on the basis of their electoral mandate.
The main building of the European Parliament’s Brussels site, the Paul-Henri Spaak Building, houses
not only the Chamber, where MEPs meet in plenary, but also facilities for holding parliamentary
committee meetings, organising press conferences and welcoming visitors.
