The Georges Pompidou Center is visually the most unique building in Paris. Built in 1977, it stands out of the crowd. Its modern design is unlike anywhere else in the world, and it becomes doubly jarring due to the historical sites one is used to seeing in Paris.However this is precisely why the building is so well respected; art isn't about conforming to standards. Some of the most famous pieces of art were ground breaking in their times, and started trends which makes them seem normal to us today. You probably will not have to look out for this building, it will appear to you if you're discovering Paris, and it will have your curiosity. However the architecture is not the only reason to visit Georges Pompidou Center. It also houses a vast public library, and the Musée National d'Art Moderne, both of which are worth a visit themselves. The Musée National d'Art Moderne is perfectly placed in this building, as it is an important piece of modern art itself. There are often exhibitions in the centre, most of them concerning modern art.
