THE 5TH EXTENSION OF THE EUROPEAN COURT OF JUSTICE

 

 

DESCRIPTION

 

Created with the Treaty of Paris in 1951, the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) – with 6 members- will give birth to the current European Union. This symbolic year sealed the European Court of Justice History. The architectural whole, from the initial courthouse inaugurated in 1973 and designed by the architects Jean-Paul Conzemius (Luxemburg), François Jamagne and Michel Vander Elst (Belgium), to the three times extended Court by the Luxembourgian architects Bohdan Paczowski and Paul Fritsch, is likewise rooted in an urban planning which has define the transformation of a mono-functional European district into a Luxembourgian city district with its streets and public spaces. For more than twenty years, Dominique Perrault, with Gaëlle Lauriot-Prévost, devotes himself to the Great Extension of this unique institution. Last expansion phase of the courthouse, the 5th extension includes a third office tower to host the administrative departments, including the lawyer-linguists, with a belvedere at its top level, facilities, new entries and public spaces. A “multilingualism garden” will be also developed at the North-East part of the site.
