"This is a magnificent venue created by the vision of one man, Ernest Solvay, in this ancient sociology institute where scientists from around the world came together to share their thoughts and ideas. In this park, Nobel Prize scientists such as Einstein and Bohr gathered for the famous Solvay Conferences. No wonder the venue resonates with brilliant minds!"

This building in the Eclectic-Art Nouveau style was designed by architects Henri Vandeveld and Constant Bosmans in 1902. The building has a reading room on two levels and a gallery, as well as several staircases, adjoining rooms and a terrace overlooking the Leopold Park where the library is located.
