The first decentralized satellite of a French museum, the Centre Pompidou-Metz is a masterpiece of contemporary architecture. Conceptualized by the architects Shigeru Ban and Jean de Gastines, with Philip Gumuchdjian, who also designed the prizewinning project, there are three exhibition spaces covered by an audacious roof inspired by a Chinese hat. The 77 metre high spire, is a nod towards the year 1977, the year the Pompidou Centre in Paris opened. Thanks to its changing exhibitions, the Centre Pompidou-Metz hosts the best of modern and contemporary art.
