The architectural team of Richard Rogers, Renzo Piano, and Gianfranco Franchini designed this unique "inside-out" building, which opened in 1977. Named for President Georges Pompidou, who succeded Charles De Gualle, it houses the National Center of Art and Culture. In addition to the art collections, the building itself is quite a curiousity, one of the few modern buildings in the city center. The view from the top is excellent.
