Vast international-style building designed by Marcel Lambrichs, built from 1969 to 1974 for the CGER (Caisse Générale d´Epargne et de Retraite).
Beautiful testimony to this era of technological and aesthetic innovation.
Designed entirely in prefabricated concrete, the facades, which are now in poor condition, bear witness to great creative research.
The inverted "Y's" that punctuate them have both a structural and aesthetic function.
This is reminiscent of the Lambert Bank or the CBR building, built at the same time.
Part of the building is still occupied by Paribas-Fortis.
Lambrichs was a prolific architect who specialized in large complexes, such as official buildings or large apartment buildings, both in Belgium and abroad.
