The Centre Pompidou is a complex building in the Beaubourg area of the 4th arrondissement of Paris. It was designed in the style of high-tech architecture.
It houses the Bibliothèque publique d'information, a vast public library; the Musée National d'Art Moderne, which is the largest museum for modern art in Europe; and IRCAM, a centre for music and acoustic research. It is named after Georges Pompidou, the President of France from 1969 to 1974 who commissioned the building, and was officially opened on 31 January 1977.
This drawing captures the stunning architectural design of this iconic structure. Drawn entirely in graphite pencil, it took approximately 100 hours to complete. You really need to see the work in the flesh to appreciate all of the fine details.
