Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano: Pompidou Centre poster
This poster shows an external elevation of a building a Guardian headline rather nicely described as 'a 70s radical that's never gone out of fashion.'
The Pompidou Centre was designed by the then remarkably young duo of Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers in response to a French competition brief. As they recalled to Rowan Moore, '“When you are that young, you are innocent. What you do is what you feel.” Their proposals “were an exercise in freedom, not guided by any desire to win or compromise.”'
An inspiring image of a structure two young architects dared to dream of, and then went off and built.
Approximate dimensions: 56 x 100cm
