ARCHITECTS: RICHARD ROGERS, SU ROGERS, RENZO IANO, GIANFRANCO FRANCHINI (1971-1977)

The Centre Pompidou is a multicultural center in the 4th arrondissement of Paris that houses a Public Information Library and the Musee National d'Art Moderne.
Parisians tend to hate or love this building and, when built, brought out many critics.
We had to visit the Centre Pompidou to see what all the controversy was about.
While the general architectural theme with all the exposed infrastructure was rather intriguing, I didn't think it was done very well.
