The Gardens of the Orient at the Arab World Institute

The Gardens of the Orient at the Arab World Institute

With its aisles of aromatic roses, orange trees, palms and jasmine, this temporary garden situated on the forecourt of the Arab World Institute offers a scent-laden hint of the magic of the East. Designed by the landscape architect Michel Pena, this gorgeous botanical display centres upon an incredible surprise created by François Abelanet. This is a charming and senses-pleasing way to soak up the many facets of an ancient art. Within the building, a fascinating exhibition takes visitors on a journey from the Iberian Peninsula and the Alhambra to the Indian subcontinent, and from the Hanging Gardens of Babylon to the comparatively recent al-Azhar Park in Cairo via some 300 works of art on loan from major international museums and private collections, and traces the history of Oriental gardens from ancient times to contemporary innovations. It’s a wonderful opportunity to explore botanical enchantment in the heart of Paris. JR.
