Beaubourg - Pompidou Centre

Built upon the commission of President Georges Pompidou by the architects Richard Rogers, Renzo Piano and Gianfranco Franchini, the Centre Pompidou, also known as Beaubourg , has intended, since its origins, to be a temple of contemporary art: a place where arts and culture would be accessible to all.

This building, with its contemporary and innovative architecture covered with blue for circulating air, green for circulating water, yellow for circulating electricity and red for circulating people, and with its visible escalators visibles, is a 7-storey glass structure with terrasses and a mezzanine).

Officially opened in 1977 by the president Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, the Centre Pompidou is home to the National Museum of Modern Art, the Institute of Acoustic and Musical Research (IRCAM) and has a free library, a variety of exhibition spaces, shops, restaurants, a cinema, and much more.
