  1. 1. Architects: Richard Rogers, Renzo Piano Location: 19 Rue Beaubourg 75004 Paris, France Structural Engineer: Ove Arup & Partners Project Year: 1977 In order to choose the architects for the project, the president held a competition and many entered, including some of the most famous architects in France at the time. People were astonished, however, when the design of Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, both not famous at the time, won the competition
  2. 2. RENZO PIANO Philosophy And Architectural Style: RENZO PIANO Renzo Piano was born on September 14, 1937 in Genoa (Italy), in the bosom of a wealthy family of construction companies Renzo Piano's work has been called high-tech and bold postmodernism. The interior is open, light, modern, natural, old and new at the same time. "Unlike most other architectural stars," writes architecture critic Paul Goldberger, "Piano has no signature style. Instead, his work is characterized by a genius for balance and context...."
  3. 3. RICHARD ROGERS PHILOSOPHY AND ARCHITECTURAL STYLE: Richard George Rogers, born on July 23rd 1933 in Florence, is an Italian born British architect known for his modernist and functionalist designs. Richard Rogers’ architectural philosophy’s topics are legible, transparent, lightweight, systems, urban, public and green

  6. 6. It is a building in two parts: 1. Three levels of infrastructure where they gather technical facilities and service, 2. A large glass and steel superstructure of seven levels, including the terrace and the mezzanine, which concentrates most sectors of activity of the Center, with the exception of Ircam, located in the plaza Stravinsky
  7. 7. • The plan is rectangular, with the longer sides on the front of the square and the service. • It has a patio at the upper right .
  8. 8. The different systems on the exterior of the building are painted different colors to distinguish their different roles. • The structure and largest ventilation components were painted white, • stairs and elevator structures were painted a silver gray, • ventilation was painted blue, • plumbing and fire control piping painted green, • the electrical elements are yellow and orange, and the elevator motor rooms and shafts, or the elements that allow for movement throughout the building, are painted red. One of the "movement" elements that the center is most known for is the escalator (painted red on the bottom) on the west facade, a tube that zigzags up to the top of the building providing visitors with an astonishing view of the city of Paris.
