Centre Georges Pompidou | Renzo Piano x Richard Rogers

This is my second visit to this magnificent high-tech architecture.

A collaborative design by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers - The Center Georges Pompidou or Pompidou Center.

Named after Georges Pompidou, the President of France from 1969 to 1974 who decided its creation.

The center houses the largest museum for modern art in Europe [Musée National d'Art Moderne], a public library [Bibliothèque publique d'information], and a centre for music and acoustic research [IRCAM]

Also on the top floor of Centre Pompidou, Georges cafe and restaurant has one of the best views of Paris.

The location of the center is in the Beaubourg area of the 4th arrondissement of Paris, near Les Halles, rue Montorgueil and the Marais.
