Meeting with Stéphanie Chazalon, Director General of the Institute of Islamic Cultures

#PARIS If”cutlture is the best defense against prejudice and obscurantism” in the words of the President of the Institute of Islamic Cultures in Paris, Bariza Khiari, this cultural establishment of the City of Paris anchored in the popular district of La Goutte d’Or brings together two places, one more contemporary, in the same spirit of dialogue as explained to us by its Director General Stephanie Chazalon, who met on the occasion of the opening of the Java art Energy exhibition.
The facade designed by Ateliers Lion Associés is a contemporary mashrabiyya open to the public space, an address for residents or walkers who can visit exhibitions and attend classes, gather in a prayer room or enjoy the hammam and friendly tea room.
A unique example she came back to.
