The regeneration of the Belgian steel town of Seraing, on the outskirts of Liège, began more than 10 years ago. Among the most striking of buildings to herald the municipality’s metamorphosis is the L’Orangerie, a rectilinear golden filigree-clad building occupied by CMI (Cockerill Maintenance & Ingénierie) and constructed by Willemen Groep company Franki.

One design issue that was never in question at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi was the colour of the roof cladding. Ferrari red was the only colour under discussion for this giant building whose roof, splatted like an outsize starfish onto Yas Island, apparently mimics the double-curvature of the side elevation of a Ferrari GT.
