The Centrre Pompidou or Centre Beaubourg is situated along the Rue Beaubourg. At this side the building shows its most colourful and radical architecture with its striking tubes. Here you can see ver clearly how the 'insides' of the building are turned to the outside. The green tubes are for water, yellow is for electrecity and blue for airconditioning.

At the Rue Beaubourg the enormous contrast with the classical buildings at the other side of the street is the most striking. The building has a very technical outlook, more ressembling a factory or refinery than looking like a building, that houses cultural functions like a library and a museum.
