Built in Paris between 1971 and 1977, the Pompidou Center is the proud home to a public library, the largest modern art museum in Europe (the Musée National d’Art Moderne), and a top-of-the-league music and acoustics study center. Piano built the structure as an over-the-top ode to high-tech architecture in which he strives to reveal a building’s inner workings and technological marvels that typically remain hidden beneath its surface.

Considered one of the most-visited music facilities in the world, Rome’s Parco della Musica was designed by Piano on the same grounds of the 1960 Summer Olympic Games. The facilities comprise three massive dome-like structures that hold three separate concert halls. One unique note about the construction: in forging new ground, Piano and co found remains of the old. The construction process unearthed an ancient Italian villa that Renzo Piano decided to include in his designs.
