The Maison du Peuple or Volkshuis , both literally translated as The People’s Home or The People’s Hostel, was a public building in Brussels which was one of the most notable design by Belgian architect Victor Horta. It was one of the most influential buildings of the Art Nouveau design in Belgium. It was commissioned by the Belgian Workers' Party and opened on 2 April 1899.
Constructed between 1896 and 1899, it was demolished in 1965, and a skyscraper was built on site. Its demolition has been regarded as an "architectural crime" and an example of "Brusselization".
