The Pompidou's New Nests
The famous Pompidou Centre by Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano is arguably one of the most iconic buildings from the 20th century, representing a feat of engineering and post-modernist (structural expressionist) style. Great works of art lie within its walls, and now, climbing up the exterior walls as well! Earlier this Spring, six nests, sheds, and huts were installed by artist and designer Tadashi Kawamata, known for his creative use of recycled and waste materials. Each of the structures is attached to the building as an "architectural haiku." The PDF from the Pompidou Centre describes them as: "little ephemeral constructions [that] invite us to see the building and its environment in a fresh and amazed way."
