Placed across the square from Laloux’s railway station, the Vinci Centre is a small convention centre. Surrounded by streets on two sides and a small public park on the third, the building projects itself out into the square with its large overhanging roof and finely detailed glazing. Behind the glazing are numerous neon tubes whicj light the facade at night from the inside.
