Atelier des enfants

Studio 13/16

(Niveau -1, 250 m²)

En 2010, le Centre Pompidou est devenu le premier grand musée au monde à créer un espace spécifique pour les adolescents. Ce lieu unique, le Studio 13/16 présente un volume généreux d’une superficie de 250 m² offrant une double hauteur sous plafond de 4,80 m. Sa situation au niveau Forum -1 lui assure une relation de proximité avec les programmations des spectacles vivants et des cinémas. Confié aux soins du designer Mathieu Lehanneur, il est conçu sur un principe de flexibilité, sous forme de workshops.
La façade extérieure du Studio 13/16 est conçue comme un medium visuel, une surface de communication, signalant ce qui se déroule à l’intérieur par des systèmes de panneaux lumineux et de diffusion vidéo. Une vitrine qui peut ainsi être personnalisée selon l’évènement.
Le studio 13/16 est privatisable pour des événements professionnels ou festifs dans des ambiances inédites et fortes : un lieu situé au cœur du Centre Pompidou et au sein d’un espace design inédit.
