Center Pompidou-Metz [France/Paris]

Centre Pompidou-Metz by Shigeru Ban & Jean de Gastines

Centre Pompidou-Metz is a joint architectural project of Japanese bureau Shigeru Ban and French — Jean de Gastines.

The wavy laminated wooden structure of a roof surrounds a 77-metre metal spike. The roof framework is covered by translucent fiber glass and a teflon textile awning. The roof total area makes 10,700 m.sq. In a new building 5,000 sq.m. of exhibition areas will be accessible. The centre will be surrounded by two gardens and a terrace.

Centre Pompidou-Metz becomes the second brand in Pompidou's family, after Centre Pompidou in Paris. Despite it, the centre program will be absolutely independent of the Parisian relative, and will make own scientific and cultural choice.
