French Corner

French Corner

In order to develop multicultural services and facilitate cultural exchanges to service the general public in the central regions, we signed a memorandum of agreement with the Centre de coopération et d’action culturelle to establish the first Un coin de France / French Corner in our multicultural service area on the third floor.

Via the establishment of partnerships, we hope to provide the general public with a more direct contact and understanding of France via the French language, cultures, society, higher education, researches, and tourism.

Spatial Design

The French-style data center occupies an area of 145 square meters. It is a representative French cultural plaza, centered around an exquisitely handcrafted fountain. Colored mural exhibits the beauty of night and day, as well as a poster kiosk and reading tree. We invite you to browse the French books and culture in this corner of Paris in the city.
