Paris and Pompidou

back of a caravan on the street of Paris

Below – a series of photographs from the amazing Centre Pompidou which was the inspirational idea by President Georges Pompidou

He wanted somewhere in the centre of Paris which focused completely on modern and contemporary creations, a mix of visual arts, cinema, theatre, music and literature

Marco Zanuso 50’s Italian Furniture

Alvar Aalto

Arne Jacobsen


What an amazing collection of work, I could have stayed there for days and it was amazing to see pieces from Fernard Leger, Catharina Van Eetvelde, Jacques Villegles’ torn posters and Marc Rothko – what amazing colour and texture.

The week was a total colour and design saturation, my head is buzzing with ideas and I want to go back – now.  For all the delight inside the building this photo was taken outside – what a comparison but I love how the weather has marked to extra large ducts!
