On 3 October 2011, Androulla Vassiliou, Member of the EC in charge of Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, participated in a ceremony that took place at the Villa Empain, in Brussels, along with Sneška Quadvlieg-Mihailović, Secretary General of Europa Nostra, and Charles Picqué, Minister-President of the Government of the Brussels-Capital Region responsible for Local Authorities, Regional Development, Monuments and Sites, Public Hygiene, Development Cooperation and Regional Statistics, to celebrate the recent 2011 EU Cultural Heritage/Europa Nostra Awards. On this occasion, a plaque commemorating the award was placed on the building. The prize was awarded to the Boghossian Foundation for their restoration of the 1935 house, which is one of the finest examples of art-deco architecture in Europe. As well as being completely restored, the building hosts a centre for art and dialogue between the cultures of East and West. The EU Prizes for Cultural Heritage were announced in Amsterdam on 10 June.
