POMPIDOU
One single shot.

Site: Georges Pompidou Centre, Paris, FRANCE

The Centre National D'art et de Culture Georges Pompidou was the brainchild of President Georges Pompidou who wanted to create an original cultural institution in the heart of Paris completely focused on modern and contemporary creation, where the visual arts would rub shoulders with theatre, music, cinema, literature and the spoken word. Housed in the centre of Paris in a building designed by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, whose architecture symbolises the spirit of the 20th century, the Centre Pompidou first opened its doors to the public in 1977. After renovation work from 1997 to December 1999, it opened to the public again on 1 January 2000, with expanded museum space and enhanced reception areas. Since then it has once again become one of the most visited attractions in France. Some 6 million people pass through the Centre Pompidou's doors each year, a total of over 190 million visitors in its 30 years of existence.


Thanks very much for viewing and reading, one more time!.





To my loved Debbie.-

I just hate the way architects and city planners and everyone else responsible for urban life seems to have lost sight of what cities are for. They are for people. That seems obvious enough, but for half a century we have been building cities that are for almost anything else: for cars, for businesses, for developers, for people with money and bold visions who refuse to see cities from ground level, as places in which people must live and function to get around. Why should I have to walk through a damp tunnel and negotiate two sets of stairs to get across a busy street? Why should cars be given priority over me? How can we be so rich and so stupid at the same time? It is the curse of our century - too much money, too little sense - and the Pompidou seems to me a kind of celebration of that in plastic.

Wow, this place looks so futuristic! Very nice photograph. Reminds me of the transportation tubes in Futurama except people aren't getting sucked through like a vacuum. The idea of the escalators seems to make that idea much more plausible. If you manipulated this pic in PShop and made all these tubes going off in the distance on the top right in all different directions, this would look really dope!
