Centre Pompidou Metz opened to the public

Today, the long awaited counterpart of the original Pompidou Centre in Paris will open to the public in the historic French town of Metz. Drawing on the more than 65,000 works held by the Musee National d’Art Moderne in the main Pompidou Centre, the Pompidou Metz is primarily an exhibition space. Its multiple unfixed exhibition areas, constructed using rectangular tubes which jut out through the roof are set to host an array of inspiring artistic collections. The dramatic silhouette of the building is formed by honeycomb-effect support beams, allowing the ceiling to rise from 5.7m to 18m in height. Centre Pompidou Metz was the product of a collaboration between Shigeru Ban Architects Europe, Jean de Gastines, Paris, and Philip Gumuchdijan.
