The Center Pompidou is exported out of the Hexagon ... for the third time! After the success of Malaga and the Brussels project (opening in late 2023), the Pompidou Center leaves Europe to conquer the largest Chinese metropolis, Shanghai (24 million inhabitants).

Signed by British architect David Chipperfield, the 25,000-square-meter glass and concrete building stretches along the banks of the Huangpu River. It is covered with a material that looks like jade and will change color depending on the tone of the day.
