Color on EU meeting site

The meeting between President Trump and the European leaders, Donald
Tusk and Jean-Claude Juncker, took place in the newly-completed
headquarters of the European Union, known as Europa. The 320-million
Euro building features a spectacular 11-story atrium with a giant
lantern-shaped glass structure that houses conference rooms. The
atrium is wrapped in glass wall constructed from recycled wood frames
salvaged from across Europe.

Opening just after Britain voted to leave the EU, the building is seen
as both a symbol of renewal for the EU and an example of its
bureaucratic excess.
