Misschien niet helemaal zichtbaar op de foto maar boven de central hall komen blijkbaar ook bureau's (tussen de schuine wand en de pillaren rechts ervan)

Because most NATO countries are in the European Union which is also primarily based in Brussels. So having the NATO HQ there is logistically convenient since there's already a cadre of diplomats there and there are easy connections to Brussels. The only other option would be New York or Washington and both of those would have given off the impression that NATO was under American domination.

Which would have been too much symbolic honesty I guess

Also, many people in America hate NATO, believing that it is speeding up the outsourcing of American jobs and destroying our economy. Reducing barriers to trade makes it easier to leave and build a factory elsewhere in a cheaper labor market, and then importing the goods.

What does NATO have to do with reducing trade barriers? Is this about arms trade? I honestly have never heard about that aspect of NATO.

It would be a good idea though to make NATO a free trade organisation. But indeed, currently it's just a military alliance.

Paris was the seat of NATO until the French withdrawal from NATO in 1966. Then it was 'temporally moved' to Brussels. With this new building this becomes permanent. SHAPE, the military headquarters were also moved from Paris to Belgium and are now located in Casteau, 50 km southwest of Brussels.

But you're right, Brussels is the largest diplomatic city in the world. So it isn't weird that NATO is in Brussels. Weird remark by "nhatrangfriendly".




Funny that NATO was long considered to be a 'dormant organisation' that lost meaning since the end of the Cold War. But now it's suddenly increasing in importance with the crazy things Russia is doing.

This is a truly impressive structure, I guess one of the biggest modern buildings in Europe right now.

I am wondering why NATO needed such a huge structure. Is it planning to allocate more units?

That is one large site. Just the sheer size of it makes it interesting. I guess since the crazy Russians have completely lost contact with the real world there is a need for this.

Nice Catch.

I'm wondering, a building of that sheer size and relative importance, does deserve a catchy nickname. Anyone got any idea's?

To me it looks like some ribs. Maybe a nickname related to ribs?
