This book is centered on the design and construction of the most important building – in both architectural and representational terms – built at CERN in recent years. This book describes the construction of building 774 at CERN. The building is unique in terms of its architectural value and its location. Located next to the CCC (CERN Control Center), it is the gateway to CERN for the more than 100,000 visitors it receives each year. The building houses the offices and laboratories where the computer programs for the Control Center are created, the management headquarters for the French side, in addition to a public-access area equipped with a conference hall, a cafeteria, and a VIP restaurant, to support the frequent visits by heads of state and Nobel prize winning scientists who tour the CERN facilities.
