Chinese pavilion & Japanese Tower

Chinese Pavilion, Laeken, Brusel, Belgie

The Chinese pavilion and Japanese Tower were built between 1901-1910, as a result of the passion of the Belgian King Leopold II for Eastern culture. He was so impressed by the 1900 Univeral Exhibition in Paris, particularly the parts from the Far East, that he commissioned these works. French architect Alexandre Marcel designed the wooden Chinese Pavilion and the high red Japanese Tower.. The pavilion houses a major collection of Chinese ceramics and porcelain manufactured for export to Europe. The complex is surrounded by a garden with many Japanese plants.
