World Bank European Office

The Bank’s office building in Paris, constructed in 1969, was planned to accommodate a large staff complement that did not materialize. The facility has been shared with the IMF and a number of other organizations. These images, photographed in February 1989, illustrate the original interior design of the building prior to renovation in the early 1990s.
