Inaugurated on 3 November 1958, the Headquarters of UNESCO is the most international building in Paris both in terms of the membership of the Organization it houses, currently standing at 186 Member States (1 July 1997) and in terms of its construction, for it is the combined work of architects of three nationalities : Marcel Breuer of the United States of America, Pier Luigi Nervi of Italy and Bernard Zehrfuss of France ; selected by an International Committee of five : Lucio Costa of Brazil, Walter Gropius of the United States of America, Charles Le Corbusier of France, Sven Markelius of Sweden and Ernesto Rogers of Italy ; the American architect, Eero Saarinen was also consulted and Eugene E. Callison, an American engineer directed the construction site. The Y=shaped administrative building, nicknamed the "three-pointed star", fits harmoniously in Place de Fontenoy alongside the Ecole Militaire.
