UNESCO Headquarters Hotel Le Bailli de Suffren

Hotel in Paris

UNESCO Headquarters

Text: At 2 minutes’ walk from LE BAILLI, on the Place de Fontenoy, the main building which houses the Headquarters of UNESCO was inaugurated on 3 November 1958. The Y-shaped design was invented by three architects of different nationalities under the direction of an international committee.

Nicknamed the ‘three-pointed star’, the edifice is world famous, not only because it is the home of a well-known organization but also because of its outstanding architectural qualities.
