"Beaubourg"

The Georges Pompidou Centre, known locally as the "Beaubourg," is Paris' main modern art museum.

The building was designed by the architect Renzo Piano and is internationally famous for its structure of exposed colored tubing. Besides having several spaces offering up art exhibits which are the talk of the Paris art world, it also has an impressive cultural program.

The two-floor library and café is a nice place where you can find books, international newspapers, journals, and music. The theaters offers films festivals, documentaries, and short films related to the current exhibits or events in the city. The tickets are usually cheaper than in normal commercial cinemas, but you can still get student, senior citizen, teacher, and unemployment discounts. The basement auditorium also hosts experimental artists and musicians from IRCAM (Institute for Research in Music and Acoustics) with composer Pierre Boulez at the helm.

There is also usually an exhibition for children with educational workshops.

You can get a membership card for about 30 euros which includes access to all exhibits and movies (as well as a discount in the bookstore) for an entire year.

Seems like a work of art

It seems like a work of art. I understand the shock of some, who don't like this mess of colors and lines in the middle of idyllic Paris. But I enjoy the contrarianism and opportunism of bringing a fresh and attractive cultural center to the center of the capital. They play drums, people sit and read, listen to music, watch a street show or do nothing at all. They sit on the ground in the area in front of the Pompidou, which is allowed because it's a public space. Whenever someone approaches, they get absurd heckles about flirting or buying a CD. I don't listen to anyone, and continue on my way. A friend tells me about something insignificant that happened today.

My friend does not like the building, it's too shrill, he says, and it's too garish. However, like me, he likes the street theaters assembled here. Sigh. He asks me what I think. I reply that I'm not move from here until plants sprout from the golden pots. He laughs. What fool he is.

Paris’ main cultural center

The Centre Georges Pompidou is the main cultural center in Paris. It stands out for its structure of exposed tubes, cables, and rectangular objects. It houses the National Museum of Modern Art (MNAM) which features works by the Surrealists, Cubists, and Matisse, as well as Pop Art and more contemporary works.

The Centre has six floors and the top offers a really stunning view of the city.

The architecture of the pompidou cent...

The architecture of the Pompidou Center is unique in the world, and you certainly will not leave you indifferent. Seen from afar, its rear facade I found a building under construction, but no, this modern building designed by architects Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, has the distinction of having all the ducts and out in order to achieve an open space in its interior, which can be used in multiple ways. It is one of the first buildings in the High-tech power. His strident facade that contrasts wildly with the modernist buildings that surround it, is a framework of metal bars, tubes, tunnels and other technological elements. The Centre Pompidou houses, among other things, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, which exhibits one of the most comprehensive collections in the world, including the likes of Picasso, Miro, Matisse, or Francis Bacon. Although I do not get too interested in contemporary art, I recommend you visit the Pompidou, if only to admire its architecture and climb-through tunnel-until glazed terrace. There are nice views of Paris.

La arquitectura del Centro Pompidou es única en el mundo, y seguro que no te dejará indiferente. Visto de lejos, su fachada posterior me pareció un edificio en construcción, pero no: este moderno edificio diseñado por los arquitectos Renzo Piano y Richard Rogers, tiene la particularidad de tener todos los conductos e instalaciones por fuera, para así lograr un espacio diáfano en su interior, que puede ser utilizado de múltiples formas.

Es uno de los primeros edificios de la corriente High-tech. Su estridente fachada, que contrasta tremendamente con la de los edificios modernistas que lo rodean, es un entramado de barras metálicas, tubos, túneles y demás elementos tecnológicos.

El Centro Pompidou alberga, entre otras cosas, el Museo de Arte Moderno y Contemporáneo, en el que se exhibe una de las colecciones más completas del mundo, que incluyen artistas de la talla de Picasso, Miró, Matisse, o Francis Bacon.

Aunque no te interese demasiado el arte contemporáneo, te recomiendo visites el Pompidou, aunque sólo sea para admirar su arquitectura y subir -a través de los túneles acristalados- hasta su terraza. Hay unas bonitas vistas de París.

The Georges Pompidou center despite his 31 years (1977) will probably touch of modernity in the Beaubourg district he resides. Due to its modern architecture, or external pipes of different colors visible to several meters to flash round the neighborhood with a contemporary twist. Once inside, the center offers all kinds of exhibitions spread over each floor. It has a very large library and students and enthusiasts rave culture in the know. It is often criticized but never equaled and was able over the years to discover many beautiful things, sometimes surprising, sometimes futuristic, but one thing is certain, there will never be tired.

Le centre Georges Pompidou malgré ses 31 ans (1977) restera sans doute la touche de modernité dans le quartier de Beaubourg dont il réside. De part son architecture moderne, ou les tuyaux extérieurs de différentes couleurs visibles à plusieurs mètre à la ronde éclair le quartier d’une touche contemporaine.

Une fois à l’intérieur, le centre propose toutes sortes d’expositions reparties sur chaque étage. Il dispose d’une très grande bibliothèque ou étudiants et passionnés de culture s’extasient dans le savoir. Il est souvent critiqué mais n'est jamais égalé et a su au cours des années faire découvrir de bien belles choses, tantôt surprenantes, tantôt futuristes, mais une chose est certaine, on ne s’y lasse jamais.

The national center of art and cultur...

The National Center of Art and Culture Georges Pompidou, more commonly known as Centre Pompidou, is a great institution of education and culture, as well as being one of the buildings visited by tourists. The building is a large rectangle with that particular architecture. No one like the other side and part of the museum entrance (west side) is the most peculiar since a set of escalators walk diagonally across the front. The Pompidou Centre could be divided into four parts: the museum with its permanent collection and temporary exhibitions, conferences and shows, the Public Library and Information library. The permanent collection has a large collection of paintings and works of art from different periods and many of the great painters and artists in history (also great for our time), you have to pay an entry for your visit. Lectures and espectácultos change very often, and every day there is news that keeps the institution. To my taste the Public Information Library is undoubtedly the very best that this building has. It consists of three floors, all in the same building as the museum. In the library there are a number of resources that had never seen before: lots of computers with internet access, hundreds of regular updates, consulting books, televisions to watch international channels in different languages ​​(from Spain, Mexico, Poland, China, Germany, Italy, etc..). Finally, the library is much more than a museum gift shop. Apart from this, it has a variety of titles, posters, cards, postcards, stationery, etc.. painting, photography, film and other great genres.

El Centro Nacional de Arte y de Cultura Georges Pompidou , más comúnmente conocido como Centre Pompidou, es una gran institución de la educación y la cultura, además de ser uno de los edificios más visitados por los turistas.
El edificio es un gran rectángulo con una arquitectura más que particular. No tiene un lado igual que el otro y la parte de la entrada al museo (el lado oeste) es el más peculiar ya que un conjunto de escaleras mecánicas recorren en diagonal toda la fachada.
El Centro Pompidou se podría dividir en 4 partes: el museo con su colección permanente y exposiciones temporales, las conferencias y espectáculos, la Biblioteca Pública de Información y la librería.
La colección permanente tiene una gran colección de pinturas y obras de arte de distintas épocas y muchos de los grandes pintores y artistas de la historia (también grandes de nuestra época); hay que pagar una entrada para su visita. Las conferencias y espectácultos cambian con gran frecuencia, y todos los días hay novedades que mantiene viva la institución. Para mi gusto la Biblioteca Pública de Información es, sin duda, lo mejorcito que tiene este edificio. Está formada por tres plantas, todas en el mismo edificio que el museo. En la biblioteca hay una cantidad de recursos que nunca antes había visto: gran cantidad de ordenadores con acceso a internet, cientos de periódicos actualizados, consulta de libros, televisiones para ver canales internacionales en distintos idiomas (de España, de México, de Polonia, de China, de Alemania, Italia, etc.). Finalmente, la librería es mucho más que una tienda de souvenirs del museo. Aparte de esto, tiene una gran variedad de títulos, posters, tarjetas, postales, papelería, etc. de pintura, fotografía, cine y de otros grandes géneros artísticos.

Its full name is the national center ...

Its full name is the National Center of Art and Culture Georges Pompidou, and houses a public library and several exhibition halls, where the arts are presented to the public all year round. It also has a cafe (very expensive), a restaurant, souvenir shop "different", show room, cinema room, children's play area and a musical research study. If you visit Paris you have to go to the Pompidou. Its facade is unusual because it seems to imitate a factory that poses a caterpillar. Noteworthy as being the city classical architecture. The little square where has a special charm. There are shops, cafes and people doing cartoons, juggling or playing and asking. Cerquita a fountain with modern sculptures very cool and a little church (was under construction then). Open daily from 11h to 22h. When we had a special exhibit on Calder (was amazing) and feminist artists (quite strong by the realism of the works and the 0 censorship). A perfect day.

Su nombre completo es Centro Nacional de Arte y Cultura Georges Pompidou, y alberga una gran biblioteca pública y varias salas de exposiciones, donde las artes plásticas se presentan al público todo el año. También tiene una cafetería (bastante cara), un restaurante, tienda de souvenirs "diferentes", sala de espectáculos, sala de cine, zona de juegos para niños y un estudio de investigación musical.

Si visitas París tienes que ir al Pompidou. Su fachada es atípica porque parece imitar a una fábrica donde se posa una oruga. Llama la atención siendo la ciudad tan clásica en su arquitectura. La placita donde se encuentra tiene un encanto especial. Hay tiendas, cafés y gente haciendo caricaturas, malabares o tocando y pidiendo. Cerquita hay una fuente con esculturas modernas muy chulas y una iglesia pequeñita (estaba en obras entonces).

Abre todos los días de 11h a 22h. Cuando fuimos había una exposición especial sobre Calder (fue alucinante) y artistas feministas (bastante fuerte por el realismo de las obras y la 0 censura). Un día perfecto.

Centre georges pompidou

We can say that the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris clashes environment rather classical architecture. Its construction was the desire of President Pompidou, to create a unique place of its kind and thereby align Paris other international capitals in the modern and contemporary art, it was inaugurated in 1977. The center now has a great reputation and welcomes millions of visitors from around the world. We also find in it a huge library. His strange story structure at first sight lines, electric stairs, metal walkways, all that is normally hidden is revealed by the great day. Architects Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, have faced great controversy against the original monument, fundamentally different and recognizable at first glance: some Parisian nicknamed indeed a "gas factory" and were this monument really ugly when it was created.

Centre georges pompidou

On peut dire que le Centre Georges Pompidou détonne dans l'environnement parisien à l'architecture plutôt classique.
Sa construction fut le souhait du président Pompidou, afin de créer un lieu unique en son genre et par là-même d'aligner Paris aux autres capitales internationales en matière d'Art moderne et contemporain, il fut inauguré en 1977. Le centre a aujourd'hui une très grande renommée et accueille des millions de visiteurs du monde entier. On trouve également en son sein une immense bibliothèque.
Sa structure étrange intrigue à première vue: canalisations, escaliers électriques, passerelles métalliques, tout ce qui est normalement caché est ici dévoilé au grand au jour. Les architectes, Renzo Piano et Richard Rogers, ont dû faire face à une grande polémique face à ce monument original, foncièrement différent, et reconnaissable au premier coup d'oeil: certains parisiens le surnommaient en effet d'« usine à gaz » et trouvaient ce monument vraiment très laid lors de sa création.

Pompidou

On the eve of the start of the project which aimed to build a modern art museum in central Paris, the team had an idea: what if we do a contest? The champion competed against 680 other ideas, but it seems to be even more brilliant. The project was to make a building in which all structural elements (such as pipes and metals) stay outside, leaving more space for the gallery. So is the irreverent Centre Pompidou. Its architecture clashes with everything that's around you, but enchants. Inside, along with coffee, cinema and exhibition spaces, is the National Museum of Modern Art with an incredible collection of paintings, sculptures and installations diverse. Among some of the artists who give the guys out there have Le Corbusier, Marcelle Duchamp and Warhol Annie.

Pompidou

As vésperas do início do projeto que tinha como objetivo erguer um museu de arte moderna no centro de Paris, a equipe teve uma ideia: e se a gente fizesse um concurso? O campeão concorreu com outras 680 ideias, mas a dele parece ser mesmo a mais genial. O projeto consistia em fazer um prédio no qual todos os elementos estruturais (como canos e metais) ficassem do lado de fora, deixando mais espaço para a galeria.

Assim é o irreverente Centre Pompidou. Sua arquitetura destoa de tudo o que há ao redor, mas encanta. Lá dentro, além de café, cinema e espaços para exposições, está o Museu Nacional de Artes Modernas com uma coleção incrível de quadros, esculturas e instalações diversas. Entre alguns dos artistas que dão as caras por lá temos Le Corbusier, Marcelle Duchamp e Annie Warhol.

Art and culture

Paris is known for its many painters, sculptors, musicians and other modern art. Apart from the Musée du Quai Branly, you can also find one of the largest art and culture in the world renowned center: the Centre Georges Pompidou. At the time the French president wanted to create a unique place where we could collect modern and contemporary art. Thus the museum was founded in 1977. The architecture is very special, it is very "design" as they say, and is accessed by escalators in glass bubbles! The Pompidou center is often in competition with art in London and New York museums. But it can be proud to have important collections of paintings, photographs, architecture and design.

Art et culture

Paris est connu pour ses nombreux artistes peintres, sculpteurs, musiciens et autres arts modernes. Hormis le musée du Quai Branly, on peut également trouver l'un des plus grands centre d'art et de culture réputé dans le monde : le Centre Georges Pompidou. A l'époque le président français souhaitait créé un lieu original où l'on pourrait rassembler les arts modernes et contemporains. C'est ainsi que le musée a vu le jour en 1977. L'architecture est très particulière, c'est très "design" comme on dirait, et l'on y accède par des escalators dans des bulles vitrées ! Le centre Pompidou se trouve souvent en concurrence avec les musées d'art de Londres et New York. Mais il peut être fier d'avoir d'importantes collections de peintures, photos, architecture et design.

París es una ciudad-escenario. Hay pocos rincones, pocas calles, pocos puentes, pocos monumentos que no hayan sido filmados o que hayan servido como localización para novelas, poemas o pinturas. No es difícil encontrar un lugar en París que te contagie de belleza.
Pero aveces, esta belleza la encuentras casi por descuido. Así sucede cuando uno quiere acceder al Centro Nacional de Arte Georges Pompidou.
Desde sus escaleras mecánicas, esas orugas plastificadas que recorren su fachada, se puede tener unas vistas preciosas de la Place Georges Pompidou y de una ristra infinita de buhardillas.
