The Centre Pompidou has bought 27 architectural models by XTU which now belong to the permanent collection and will be displayed in a dedicated room. The models expose completed buildings as well as various research projects showing the approach and progression of their work. Two video projections on the Cité du Vin in Bordeaux as well as the firms’ prospective process are also displayed.
You will be able to discover the models as of Wednesday 10th of April, Room 22, level 4, Centre Pompidou. Founded in 2000 by architects Anouk Legendre and Nicolas Desmazières, XTU is an architectural firm located in Paris that is engaged in innovative environmental research. Their first projects were characterised by a complex sculptural aesthetic based on the utilisation of parametric modeling software. Source by XTU and photos Courtesy of Metropolis.
