contributed by Buschi

Centre Georges Pompidou is a complex in the Beaubourg area of the IVe arrondissement of Paris, near Les Halles and the Marais. It houses the Bibliothèque publique d'information, a public library, the Musée National d'Art Moderne, and IRCAM, a centre for music and acoustic research. The building was designed by the architects Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers and Sue Rogers and engineers Peter Rice and Edmund Happold, whose design was not popular at first. However, under the guidance of its first director, Pontus Hultén, it quickly became a noted attraction in Paris. The Pompidou 'revolutionized museums,' the Pritzker jury said, 'transforming what had once been elite monuments into popular places of social and cultural exchange, woven into the heart of the city. The characteristic piping is colour-coded according to the contents: yellow for electricity, red for transport, blue for water, and green for air.' []

MI_MOA says:
@piwil: I've added Gianfranco Francini as interior architect. The other credits were correct. (Richard Rogers Partnership became Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners in 2007). Despite of the fact that the design is a result of a designteam of Rogers, Piano and Franchini, we can only mention 1 architect as 'main' architect.

Piwil says:
I think the architects of this building are Renzo Piano, Michael Rogers and Gianfranco Francini, not Roger Stirk harbour !
Still modern, Still challenging, Great architecture!

This is one of the best buildings I have ever visited. The multiplicty of different functions keeps the building in constant life, an absolute masterpiece.
