A close-up look at the wood and glass screen of the Library shows the intricate Arabesque star pattern which is repeated throughout the Arab Organizations Headquarters Building.  The screen, shown here from the entrance lobby side, is comprised of 13,000 pieces of wood.  The chamfered edges of the glass create a prism effect, so that the light shimmers and creates rainbows with the slightest movement.
