Make the most of the Pompidou Centre this summer
Published on 10 August 2018, dans Exhibitions & Museum
Paris would not be such a cultural and artistic focal point in the world without the Pompidou Centre! Immense, multidisciplinary, and instantly recognisable due to its futuristic architecture and multicoloured pipework, this spectacular building is an irreplaceable institution. This summer you can enjoy its magnificent exhibitions, lively forecourt, famous bookstore and its rooftop restaurant, the Georges.
Great exhibitions this summer at the Pompidou Centre
This summer, lovers of art and culture will find plenty to interest them at the Pompidou Centre! The museum offers an exhibition around the Union of Modern Artists, a fascinating movement that brought together decorative artists and architects such as Le Corbusier and Jean Prouvé. Driven by the idea of functionality over ornament and creating affordable designs using industrial materials, they sought to make a clean break with the past. Then, experience a change of pace with the exhibition dedicated to Ryoji Ikeda, an artist who works at the intersection of sound and vision.
A magnificent panoramic view at Georges
After an afternoon of culture, come and relax at the chic George restaurant, on the roof of the Pompidou Centre. You can admire the slate and zinc roofs of Paris stretching as far as the eye can see, while sipping a delicious cocktail. Perfect for a solo reverie, an evening at Georges is also ideal for a romantic date. In the evening, you’ll be happy to return to your room at the Hotel Jacques de Molay, a few minutes’ walk from the Pompidou Centre. With its elegant, contemporary decor and fine materials, the Hotel Jacques de Molay is your chic and comfortable refuge in the centre of the capital. Serene and welcoming, our hotel will be your haven of relaxation during your stay in Paris.
