EU Court of Justice



Established in 1952, the European Court of Justice stands as the supreme judicial body within the union, featuring a designated judge from each member state. Situated atop the Kirchberg plateau and set apart from Luxembourg City by a profound ravine, the court had, until recently, possessed a somewhat uninspiring ambiance. However, Perrault has managed to infuse an unanticipated sense of whimsy into the surroundings.
