Parc des Expositions/Tentoonstellingspark

   The Parc des Expositions lies at the north end of the boulevard du Centenaire. It was laid out in the mid-1930s and the buildings were constructed to house exhibits for the World's Fair of 1935. The central structure is the Palais du Centenaire, designed by Brussels architect Joseph van Neck (1880-1959), and adjacent to it is the Brussels International Trade Mart, one of the world's largest exhibition halls. It was designed by American architect John Portman.
