This building was the former headquarters of the Solvay company, located in Ixelles between Rue du Prince Albert and Rue de l'Arbre Bénit. Built in 1883 by the architects Constant Bosmans and Henri Vandeveld, the place was re-built over the years and reached 50,000 square meters. It closed in 2012.

In 2016, artist Denis Meyers starts a new and crazy project. He decides to paint the entire walls, doors, windows, facades and roofs of the building with words, phrases, ideas, memories that crossed his mind. His work premiered on April 22, 2016 and gathered a lot of visitors.

The planned demolition took place the following months and ended in 2017. Today, the site is completely demolished and converted into a luxury residential space.
