Centre Pompidou – Metz
The Centre Pompidou-Metz is a stunning exhibition space set to debut this month in France. Their mission to represent a major centre for exhibitions and artistic initiative, and a reflection of contemporary creation, should definitely be realized based on its amazing, forward-looking design. An international architectural competition was launched in 2003 to design the Centre Pompidou, and in November 2003 the project of Shigeru Ban and Jean de Gastines associated with Philip Gumuchdjian was selected.
The Centre Pompidou-Metz is a large hexagonal structure with three galleries running through the building. Inside the building, the general atmosphere is light with a pale wood roof, white-painted walls and floors in pearl-grey polished concrete.
The Centre Pompidou houses 3 exhibition galleries, an auditorium with 144 seats, a café, restaurant, gift shop, and a resource center. For more information on this amazing space, visit the website.
