POMPIDOU CENTER - METZ, Metz, France


POMPIDOU CENTER - METZ, Metz, France
 
Our team-Shigeru Ban, Jean de de Gastines and Philip Gumuchdjian won an international competition in 2003 among other finalists of Foreign Office Architects (FOA), Herzog & de Meuron, Stephane Maupin and Pascal Cribier, NOX and Dominique Perrault.
The 12,000 m2 cultural complex includes 6,000 m2 of exhibition space all contained under the roof. Three rectangular, cantilevered boxes house parts of the Pompidou Centre's permanent collection in a climate controlled environment. Each of the 87-meter-long and fifteen-meter-wide boxes will be directed toward a view of one of the city's historic monuments such as the railway station and the cathedral.
