The Palace of Justice Antwerp is a court located in the south of the city of Antwerp on the Bolivarplaats where the South Station used to be. The building was designed by architect Richard Rogers.
It consists of 6 large glass wings, 4 stories high. An important point of recognition for the new court is the 6 'pointed hats', located above the large courtrooms. In addition to these 6 large shell roofs, there are 26 smaller shell roofs, located above the smaller sitting rooms. The meeting rooms can be reached via the central hall'. The court is popularly called "the frietzakskes" or the butterfly palace. The second name has to do with the top view. Seen from the air, or on a floor plan, the six wings are reminiscent of a butterfly.
On completion, the building cost 280 million euros.
