Stop At: Atomium Square Laeken, Brussels 1020 Belgium
The Atomium as the Symbol of Brussels
An example of what it means when art meets architecture
There are few buildings that can capture the imagination of visitors of all ages and backgrounds. By using fantastical yet familiar elements to enable a sense of wonder on the part of viewers from across the world, the Atomium, sitting in the northwest area of central Brussels in Belgium, is one of those buildings.
The Atomium is a giant model of a unit cell of an iron crystal, with each sphere of the structure symbolizing an atom. Completed in 1958 as a unique combination of art and architecture, it has somehow been able to endure with one foot in the past and one in the future. The structure attracts over 600,000 visitors every year and in the process has become one of the national symbols of Belgium.
