Completed in January 1977, Richard Rogers’s and Renzo Piano’s Centre Georges Pompidou was initially received skeptically by critics, but the public soon embraced Beaubourg as an essential—and well loved—Paris institution. Francesco Dal Co’s lively intellectual biography, Centre Pompidou: Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers, and the Making of a Modern Monument (Nov. 29, Yale University Press) explores the Pompidou’s history and the reasons for its success, from its genesis as a politically calculated response to the turbulent 1968 student protests to the role played by architects in its construction, as well as the historical influences and the engineering solutions that inform its design. As Dal Co reveals, a key reason for the Centre Pompidou’s lasting significance lies in its ability to channel architectural memory, connecting it powerfully to Paris’s historic urban fabric.

In the weeks leading up to the Centre Pompidou’s fortieth anniversary, we invite you to join Francesco Dal Co, Robert M. Rubin, Martino Stierli, and Anthony Vidler as they consider the Pompidou’s contentious origins, its emergence as a key cultural landmark, and its future. This event is co-sponsored by NYU’s Department of Art History, Urban Design, and Architecture Studies and the New York Metropolitan Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians, and a book signing will follow the panel discussion.
