I recount the first time I took the half hour stroll to the EU’s External Action Service, walking up the Rue de la Loi towards the Rond-point Schuman at the top. The architecture along this street in Brussels, which houses the buildings of EU institutions, is very much the front stage of the EU. At the same time, the real frontstage of the EU is elsewhere, as most people do not visit the EU here. As a backstage, this street reveals an unchoreographed landscape of buildings that do not match. As part of a story and as storytellers themselves, what do these buildings communicate about the backstage of transnational legal practice?
