Located in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, the UNESCO House has been home to the headquarters of this specialized agency of the United Nations (UN) since 1958. A treasure of modern architecture, it is the result of a collaboration among several emblematic figures of the twentieth century, including the architects Bernard Zehrfuss, Marcel Breuer, and Luigi Nervi. This guided tour, which focuses on the actions and impact of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, will allow you to discover its operations as well as its values. Accompanied by your guide, you will pass through the institution's iconic spaces, such as its impressive conference rooms, walkways, concrete corridors, the only Japanese garden in Paris, and its meditation space designed by the famous Japanese architect Tadao Ando. This guided tour will also be an opportunity to discover the exceptional works of art housed in UNESCO House: from Miró to Picasso, from Giacometti to Calder, a unique and unexpected collection of more than 600 contemporary masterpieces unfolds along the way. Whether you are interested in UNESCO's missions, passionate about art and architecture, or simply want to know how this famous organization works, this guided tour in the heart of Paris will arouse your curiosity and inspire.
