Incredible Shigeru Ban Pompidou-Metz Art Museum Rises in France
The building’s interior consists of three long rectangular galleries that join together at different levels through techniques commonly used for bridge building. At several points, the narrow galleries jut through the roof to provide window space for expansive views of the city. The architects fostered a light and airy ambience indoors by utilizing pale light wood, white walls and pearl-grey polished concrete. A large atrium welcomes visitors indoors and encourages gathering, while the exterior of the building features a terrace and two sculpture gardens. The gardens are landscaped with grassy folds that enable rainwater control and numerous paths that provide pedestrian access to downtown areas and the TVG high speed electric train station.
