It was a real thrill to attend the École Centrale Paris "remise de diplôme" ceremony recently held in the UNESCO building--not only to be there as a proud parent but also to hear the keynote address of French particle physicist and alumnus, Nathalie Besson. Besson worked on the Large Hadron Collider project, to date the world's most powerful particle accelerator. The symmetry and beauty of the pre-formed concrete ceiling and walls of the UNESCO amphitheatre, with colored projector lighting, harmonized. Universal appeal.
