Most buildings of the horse-shoe shaped complex were commissioned by King Leopold II and built for the 1880 National Exhibition commemmorating the fiftieth anniversary of Belgian independence. The centrepiece triumphal arch was erected in 1905. The structures were built in iron, glass and stone, symbolising the economic and industrial performance of Belgium.
