Photo-post #7 – Le Centre Pompidou à Paris

Architecture is a very dangerous job. If a writer makes a bad book, eh, people don’t read it. But if you make a bad architecture, you impose ugliness on a place for a hundred years.

(Renzo Piano)

Le Centre Georges Pompidou de Paris est bien plus d’un musée!

Projected by the architects Piano and Rogers, it not only houses the Musée National d’Art Moderne (the largest museum of modern art in Europe) with its amazing artworks collection, but also a huge public library (Bibliothèque Publique d’Information), auditoriums, a restaurant, a center for music and acoustic research, and a wonderful sight of Paris! 

Open in 1977 it still surprises all visitors for its modern and revolutionary architectural design: all functional structural elements are colour-code, as an explosion of brightly colored service pipes are kept outside the building itself, as like the main escalator. That way, the building offers and extreme flexibility to the internal arrangement. 

The Centre Pompidou also have a rich cultural program with several exhibitions, international conferences and events. 

The art collection offers a great panorama of the modern art in late 1800 and 1900 from all over the world.
