The Centre Pompidou-Metz art centre, by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban and Jean de Gastines, is one of Metz’s crowning jewels. Shigeru Ban, a Pritzker Architecture Prize recipient (one of the world’s premier architectural awards) designed the white museum roof in the shape of an Asian rice farmer. The nearby Imperial District offers splendid examples of early 20th-century revivalist German architecture. Even the train station, almost a museum in itself, showcases a collection of various styles: from Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque to Art Deco and Art Nouveau. Beyond the visual arts, Metz also has a reputation for the quality and scope of its classical music. Enthusiasts can indulge in the programme of the Opera-Théâtre (one of France’s oldest theatres) and the Cité Musicale-Metz, home to the prominent Orchestre National de Metz. quattropole.org/en Facebook: QuattroPole
