Centre Pompidou

Paris is such a gorgeous old beast of a to house their modern art collection the giant Pompidou was loudly plopped down in the middle of a grand old neighborhood.

I loved how this woman's stockings mimicked the iconic external staircase of the building:

Ultimately, the plaza out front has become a gathering place for buskers and jugglers and street performers of all kinds.

Just a few blocks away and you can find yourself exploring the winding streets of the Marais, finding some respite in a hidden peaceful courtyard and nibbling on a croissant.
