On the second day in Paris we visited a few landmarks of the city we had missed during our Spring Break visit. The first was the Centre Pompidou by architects Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, or the inside-out building. All the systems, structure, circulation, etc are exposed and categorized by a different color. In this quaint neighborhood in Paris, it was a pretty revolutionary move to make in the mid 1970’s. It rises above the traditional height of the walk up buildings surrounding it. The views of paris from the top were amazing! Just outside of the Centre Pompidou, the sculptor Brancusi’s studio has been remade by architect Renzo Piano in his more contemporary style.
Final day in Paris! Paris_Versaille_ part 3, stay tuned!
