Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris
The “Arab World Institute” was built in Paris, France in 1987, designed by Jean Nouvel, to mark the centuries-long connection between France and 21 Arab countries. The architecture was made to reflect such ties. Interesting to the façade of the structure is the steel latticework integrated into the skin of the building. According to the time of day and amount of sunlight, the ornament opens or closes to protect the artwork inside.
