Pompidou is touring France with ‘The Centre Pompidou Mobile’ a balloon-like structure that will do the rounds of the country in a tent designed by architect Patrick Bouchain.

The Centre Pompidou Mobile will feature 14 of the museum’s exhibits and is composed of three diamond-shaped tents that together take up nearly 700 square meters. The interior of the mobile museum, in contrast to the medley of hues in its exterior, is stark and white inside.

The Centre Pompidou Mobile required 2.5 million euros to envision and construct, funded primarily by The Ministry of Culture and corporate sponsors, and cost 400,000 euros per stop, half of which is covered by “local partners.”
