Asbjorn Lonvig's words: The most astonishing about The Centre national d'art et de culture Georges Pompidou is the backside architecture.

It has only been point of departure for my work... my motif has not at all any resemblance with the Centre's look...
Wikipedia's words: The Centre national d'art et de culture Georges Pompidou was the brainchild of President Georges Pompidou who wanted to create an
original cultural institution in the heart of Paris completely focused on modern and contemporary creation, where the visual arts would rub shoulders with
theatre, music, cinema, literature and the spoken word. Housed in the centre of Paris in a building designed by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, whose
architecture symbolises the spirit of the 20th century, the Centre Pompidou first opened its doors to the public in 1977. After renovation work from 1997 to
December 1999, it opened to the public again on 1 January 2000, with expanded museum space and enhanced reception areas. Since then it has once again
become one of the most visited attractions in France. Some 6 million people pass through the Centre Pompidou's doors each year, a total of over 190 million
visitors in its 30 years of existence.
