The European Council building, called the Justus Lipsius, has a bold and all-encompassing architectural style that reflects the building's import as the location for hosting some of the continent's most important policy and diplomacy meetings. The design features a metal latticework cube that surrounds and partially obscures a large volumetric sphere inside.

The sphere-within-cube design of the European Council building is ripe with metaphors. For one, the lattice that holds the sphere is a metaphor for the council's attempt to impose order and stability on the world. Also, the building as a whole is a visual reference to the flag of the European Union, with the lattice being the outline of the flag and the sphere as the ring of stars inside.
