Centre Georges Pompidou is a complex in the Beaubourg area of the 4th arrondissement of Paris. It houses the Bibliothèque publique d’information, the Musée National d’Art Moderne and a centre for music and acoustic research.

The centre was designed by the architectural team of Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano, along with Gianfranco Franchini. Initially, all of the functional structural elements of the building were colour-coded: green pipes are plumbing, blue ducts are for climate control, electrical wires are encased in yellow, and circulation elements and devices for safety (e.g., fire extinguishers) are red.
