Centre Pompidou has an identity crisis

Whenever I am in Paris, I always make some time to visit the grand Centre Pompidou. After four decades, the modern art museum with its inside-out construction is looking less cutting-edge, but it still boasts one of Europe’s best contemporary and modern art collections. However, it seems that I am not the typical Paris tourist. The Centre Pompidou has been experiencing an identity crisis since it can’t manage to compete with the city’s wildly popular and over-touristed sites, such as the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. To counteract the drop in attendance, the museum has embarked on a novel PR campaign that just might boost its standing with visitors.

    That is a great piece of guerrilla marketing, really enjoyable to watch.

    Building sucks, and it’s contents can only
    be more insipid or downright effrontery.
    Please demolish this eyesore and use the alleged artwork for toasting marshmallows.
    Yours disrespectfully,

    I walked past it a few years ago and I enjoyed the architecture, thinking it was still under construction. I mean, it looked great, but seriously, because it looks like construction, it looks unfinished. Architects should have followed the same style, but with more walls xD
