Just steps away from the Seine river in the square at the Institut du Monde Arabe, a large garden will be in bloom from April 19th to September 25th, 2016. The orange and palm trees, roses and jasmine will transport you out of Paris and into other worlds, exploring styles ranging from the Iberian peninsula to the Indian subcontinent.

Paris may be famous for its French-style gardens, but now the capital boasts a beautiful Eastern style garden, in the courtyard of the Institut du Monde Arabe (Arab World Institute.) To explore the Arab world, the Institute offers a tour through a temporary Eastern garden, created by landscape artist Michel Pena, with rows of orange and palm trees, roses and jasmine, enhanced by a giant plant anamorphosis by François Abelanet.

This garden is influenced by some of the most beautiful gardens in the Eastern world, from the earliest Antiquity period to the present day, from the Iberian peninsula to the Indian subcontinent, while complementing the exhibition inside the Institut du Monde Arabe.

In the museum halls, more than 300 drawings, models, stories, and giant prints run through the history of Eastern gardens, showing the artwork in public and private sites, and sharing the culture, history, technique, botany, environment, society…”Did you know that public parks are a recent innovation in the East? Or that in an ancient Persian language, the word “garden,” pairi-daeza, is where the word “paradise” comes from? These are just some of the tidbits that the Institut du Monde Arabe reveals this year.

From the hanging gardens of Bablyon to the recent Al-Azhar du Caire Park, the Alhambra in Grenada to the Test Garden in Algiers, the Prince’s Garden or the Garden For All, this fascinating tour brings us to the heart of the city gardens!
