The French Institute is located in the heart of the Chaoyang District, east of Beijing. The oldest foreign cultural center in China, it opened its doors in October 2004, taking the name "Institut français" in April 2011.
In January 2013, the French Institute closed its doors in order to modernize and increase its attractiveness. Designed by architect Nicolas Godelet of the Gejian Architects and Engineers agency, Julien Masurel (JML Architecture) and Pong Yuen Cheung (CPYA), this renovation is characterized by a restructuring of the space of the Institute in order to create a gallery Allowing to host events and exhibitions, a strong aesthetic identity carried by a white metal mesh that covers the ceilings and enhances digital equipment in all spaces.
