Centre Pompidou-Metz

Like the parent building in Paris, the new ­Centre Pompidou in Metz was conceived as an innovative location for the arts. In addition to volumes for exhibitions stacked above each other in offset form, there are halls and other facilities for various activities. In the evening, the hexagonal pattern of the load-bearing timber roof structure, is visible through the translucent covering membrane. Around the central mast and the exhibition boxes, the structure is fixed to large steel rings and extends inwards to four funnel-shaped supporting piers. Internally, the 37-metre-high hall is flooded with light. Through facades in transparent corrugated polycarbonate sheeting, the building opens itself to the outside world.
