GA Pompidou Centre Beaubourg, Yukio Futagawa
A.D.A Edita Tokyo, 1977. Softcover with card wrap covers. 28 pages. 36,5 x 26 cm. Used. VG. The Pompidou is a complex building in the Beaubourg area of the 4th arrondissement of Paris, near Les Halles, rue Montorgueil, and the Marais. It was designed in the style of high-tech architecture by the architectural team of Richard Rogers, Su Rogers, Renzo Piano, along with Gianfranco Franchini. It was the first major example of an 'inside-out' building with its structural system, mechanical systems, and circulation exposed on the exterior of the building. Initially, all of the functional structural elements of the building were colour-coded. This special issue was published around the time of the opening, and is a great and huge book of the Pompidou Centre photographed brilliantly by Yukio Futagawa.  Highly recommended!
