With its intertwined tubes and bright colours, Centre Georges Pompidou was considered the most controversial structure in Paris when it was built in the 1970s. Although the debate continues to this day, most Parisians have accepted its existence and some even praise it. This cultural complex houses a modern art museum (le Musée national d'art moderne), an exhibition hall, a library, and a center for music research. Le Centre Georges Pompidou is located between Les Halles and le Marais district in the heart of Paris.
