Centre Pompidou Mobile: Paris Art Museum Goes Nomad in a Traveling Pop-Up Prefab Space!

Lightweight and easily transportable, Centre Pompidou Mobile  is an ephemeral building  that is currently touring cities in France . Taking inspiration from the circus, the mobile museum consists of three flexible diamond-shaped tents that easily fold and unfold. The temporary structure is made from a taught waterproof plastic, and its colors reflect the original late-modernist  museum’s exteriors.
In contrast to its bright exterior, the interiors are matte-white and plain, just like any other museum . One of the many exhibits on show is ‘Circles and Squares’, which uses universal forms to create curious optical effects, attracting visitors of all ages. The Centre Pompidou Mobile is a great way to introduce culture to small quiet cities that lack art hubs, and it’s a great example for other museums to follow.
