""the Japanese Tower In Brussels" Frans Bossaerts (1879 - 1960)"
At the end of the 19th century, King Leopold II entrusted the construction of the building to the French architect Alexandre Marcel. The construction site began in 1901 and ended in 1904. The Japanese Tower was inaugurated in 1905 in the royal domain in Laeken. The works were carried out by Belgian contractors and French decorators. Until 1909, the Japanese Tower had a purely ornamental vocation. Important foreign visitors are sometimes received there. In 1909, King Leopold II donated the building to the Belgian State and the Tower finally returned to the Royal Museums of Art and History.
