Centre Pompidou Faces Three- to Seven-Year Renovation Closure

Paris’s Centre Pompidou could fully close for three years, beginning in 2023, or close partially for seven years, in order for necessary repairs to be made to the iconic 1970s building, The Art Newspaper reports. The schedule of the projected $235 million maintenance work is currently under consideration by the French government.

Though an overhaul of the building’s external glass-enclosed escalators was begun in 2019 with expected completion in 2021, with further plans afoot for a new, expanded entrance, Centre Pompidou’s president, Serge Lasvignes, told French daily Le Figaro that no major work had been done on the structure since it opened in 1977.

This project feels different. He has a whopper of a mess on his hands — and once again some of it is his own doing, some of it not. His to-do list is extensive:

Repair the offensive line after years of neglect by the front office.

Shore up the depleted defensive line.

Help Kirk Cousins regroup and find his way after a poor start.

Develop a cast of inexperienced cornerbacks.
