The architecture is sober, avoiding any borrowed vocabulary. The new headquarters of UCB, a major Belgian pharmaceutical company with worldwide markets, was designed by ASSAR. The practice, which was founded in 1985, is today one of the largest firms in Belgium. In this book, the history of the Brussels building and its conception is told. This history is illustrated and accompanied by the perspectives of both the client and the architect.
