Japanese architects Shigeru Ban and Jean de Gastines of France have come up with a new French cultural institution. Called the ‘Centre Pompidou-Metz’, the new structure incorporates a studio for live performances, an auditorium, a resource centre, reception areas, a shop/bookshop, a restaurant and a café. The roof is a depiction of innovation, creativity and eco-friendliness. The undulating laminated timber roof structure surrounding a 77-metre metal spire makes the structure extraordinary.

Wood became the choice for the construction for a simple reason that it is an inexhaustible and easily recycled material. The Centre Pompidou-Metz meets environmental quality and sustainable development criteria. The frame of the building is covered with a translucent fiberglass and Teflon textile canopy. It overhangs the building’s walls by up to 20 meters. Going public on 12 May, the structure is surrounded by two beautiful gardens.
