Herstal might be one of the first cities in the world to have a City Hall that features a grass building design with side panels made from planets. The beautiful checkered architecture is an environmentally friendly design that offers more green space in an unconventional way.
The city of Herstal's government buildings feature a unique design put together by Frederic Haesevoets Architecture firm that has build a checkerboard style design on the side of the structures. Each of the squares are either made from glass, green grass or grey panels. The incorporation of green space into the design of the building adds planet life directly into the building that can grow and bloom while the building continues to age. The aesthetic offers a natural dynamic to the man-made structure.
