Modern Architecture

You don't expect the view of the Centre Pompidou as you come out of Rue Saint Merri onto Rue du Renard.

I am told many Parisians have "trouble" with the architecture from the 70's.

It houses the biggest collection of modern and contemporary art in Europe.

I loved the gallery spaces and the wide hallways.

You have one of the best views of Paris from the top floor.

The main entrance looked like a subway station, in my opinion. My son said it looked like Yorkdale Mall in Toronto!

Their permanent collection is amazing -more on that in later posts. I was so inspired!

I want to go home to create and sew right now!
