I disagree..Piano and Rogers took a parking lot surrounded by what was quickly becoming a decrepid remnant of the Parisian vernacular, and revitalized it with a public treasure of art and information, as well as a vibrant piazza, brought to life by constant social interaction and random and informal expressions of art and theatre. Its highly contrasting addition to Beaubourg has only accentuated the surrounding urban fabric, I, although not a Parisian, see Pompidou as (though its without question an albatross) a respectful and appropriate addition.
