SOM architects, Brussels, 2004

The NATO Headquarters, in Brussels, Belgium, is the political headquarters of the Alliance and the permanent home of the North Atlantic Council, NATO’s senior political decision-making body.

Like fingers interlaced in a symbolic clasp of unity and mutual interdependence, SOM’s design for the International Treaty Organization Headquarters represents the changing mission of the organization from opposition and prevention to unification and integration. The SOM landmark design provides each member-nation with embassy-level security and privacy while also providing shared space where national representatives can meet as partners in the pursuit of peace and comity.

The new HQ will be gigantic:120.000 m2 when completed in 2012 at a cost of 300 million euro
