The Pompidou Arts Centre
Do you remember at school, that there was always one child who seemed to wear his (it was always a he) his clothes inside out, and odd socks ? No ?, Just me then.
Anyway, the architectural equilvalent of this 'odd child' is this 1970's creation of Rogers and Piano. All the 'gubbins' of the building are on the outside. It created a storm when it opened, but is now almost considered ordinary.
Sourbugger doesn't care much for the modern arty-farty stuff that fill the place, but at least if you like esculators you can ascend to the top floor for a good (and FREE) view of Paris.
