About this spot
The Altiero Spinelli (ASP) building houses the offices of the Members of Parliament and the policy support departments. There are also shops, bank branches, restaurants, a cafeteria, a bar and sports facilities. It was named after the Italian politician Altiero Spinelli, who is considered one of the founding fathers of the European Union.

Construction began in 1991 and was completed in 1997. The building features five tall towers, each with more than 17 floors. The building stands on the west side of Paul-Henri Spaak and is connected to it via the upper floors. On the west side of the building are the new D4 and D5 buildings, to which it is connected by a glass covered bridge. To the north is the Bertha von Suttner Building.
