Centre Georges Pompidou

The Pompidou stands out like no other building in Paris. It quite literally "turned the architecture world upside down", or as I saw it, inside out. This strange building presents the plumbing, electrical and structural system as part of the facade. To be honest, I do not appreciate the exterior aesthetic of the building. It feels cluttered and the color scheme clashes with the building's surroundings. Although, because the interior is used as a gallery space it feels similar to any other modern art museum. It is a strange juxtaposition of the conventional and the outlandish.
