In 1890, Victor Horta was entrusted the task of designing a building to house the monumental marble relief "Human Passions" by the sculptor Jef Lambeaux. The architect had trouble curbing the sculptor's desire to leave his mark on the building's architecture. But the result was breathtaking: although classical at first sight, the building turned out to be very innovative and clearly announced the emergence of Art Nouveau.
