- This institute was formed to enable cross-cultural understanding between the Arab nations and France. Established in 1980 with 18 Arab countries, the institute advocates the dissemination of knowledge and cultural customs as well as spiritual teachings in France. The focal point of the institute is to have a continuous cultural exchange between both countries. It is heartening to know that the Arab World Institute ranks among Paris' most-visited monuments and has been created by architect Jean Nouvel. One of the highlights of the building is the hall of pillars.
