Chinese Pavilion, Brussels, Belgium
Near the royal palace on the outskirts of Brussels, there are a pair of curious and rather out-of-place buildings, built to satisfy the their king's enthusiasm for Asia in the early 20th century. The Chinese Pavilion has a beautiful intricacy, but also appears rather run-down and self-conscious in its Orientalism.
