The building looks nice and huge. Maybe some politicians want to have a huge building having in sight a possible need to replace NATO with an EU army HQ

They're active in Afghanistan (the whole war in Afghanistan is a NATO operation) Iraq, Darfur and the Balkan region. They also provide humanitarian aid during earthquakes, floods etc because they can mobilize forces and deliver aid faster than the UN can.

I'm not saying that these tasks couldn't be done by another organisation, not defending NATO at all, just saying that the people in the NATO HQ are not just sitting around doing nothing all day.

It seems vulnerable when you see the building from the outside. It seems like it's all glass cladding and no bunker-like area to protect it from bomb blast nor nuclear attack. I wonder how's the protection inside?

I don't think thatj, when it comes to a nuclear blast, it matters a whole lot whether the cladding is glass, stone or something else...

Ugly building! A pack of garages... So, they decided that Poland is way too close to Russia to place a headquarters there?
