Now go into the Rousegaertchen, the public garden in front of the building. Observe the facade’s many sculptures and come up with a story based on the symbols, statues and decorations. Perhaps you are wondering about the green tint of the roof? When used as a building material, copper turns green over time. In 2016 the building was renovated to the design of the architectural practice Jim Clemes Associates and is currently used by a bank.
Over the entrance, you can see the word “ARBED”. This used to be the headquarters of a steelmaking company responsible for a lot of Luxembourg’s wealth in the early 20th century. Now known as ArcelorMittal, the company still exists. One example of its products are the rails for the new tramline.
