The Solvay Library is located in Leopold Park in the heart of the European district. Here is a magnificent venue created by the vision of one man, Ernest Solvay.
The idea was then conceptualised by the renowned Brussels architects Constant Bosmans and Henri Vandeveld. They drew up the plans and carried out the construction work in 1902. It was here, in this ancient Institute of Sociology, where scientists from around the world came together to share their thoughts and ideas.
In this science park, Einstein, Bohr and other Nobel Prize scientists gathered for the famous Solvay Conferences. No wonder the venue resonates with brilliant minds! In the 1980’s, the building was abandoned and fell into ruin. Thankfully, after being listed historical monument in 1986, it was saved and fully renovated by the Region and Citydev.brussels in 1994.
Today, in this elegant library with its diverse and complex style worthy of a novel, Edificio can host private and professional events from 50 to 250 guests.
