Wonderful performance to recreate in a "shell" the atmosphere where this Romanian genius (discovered more and more by his native country) created his masterworks. A little Romanian space in the middle of Paris, right next Pompidou Centre. One of the greatest sculptors of the 20th century, the patriarch of the modern art was extremely appreciated by Peggy Guggenheim, Rodin or... More

I was impressed and touched with this place. Constantin Brancusi was romanian sculptor, and by seeing his work in Paris, seeing that the french appreciate truly his work was emotional. The studio is pretty small but cozy.

I loved the art in there and the and the building it self, there is 3 or 4 museums in the area and I recommend them all. Paris is old and all the buildings have a lot of history

This unexpected, spacious gallery housing a collection of the sculptures of the Hungarian expat Brancusi is located next to the Pompidou Centre and despite its size can easily be overlooked: it's well worth 30 minutes of your time though as it's free admission, cool and quiet. It seems relatively few visitos realise it's there and that it's free.

Beautiful and Authentic. West of the Centre Pompidou main building, this reconstruction of the studio of Romanian-born sculptor Constantin Brancusi (1876–1957) designed by Renzo Piano contains some 160 examples of the sculptor’s work.

Constantin Brâncuși was a Romanian sculptor, painter and photographer who made his career in France. Considered a pioneer of modernism, one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th-century, Brâncuși is called the patriarch of modern sculpture. His art emphasizes clean geometrical lines that balance forms inherent in his materials with the symbolic allusions of representational art. Brâncuși sought inspiration... More

This pretty (reconstructed) sculptor's studio only takes a few mins to see, and is free and right outside the Pompidou Centre, so you may as well drop in. It's a rather nondescript concrete building which is easy to miss!

I went here, taking with me a Parisian friend, who had no clue the place existed. I sat for quite a while just taking it in. Incredible. I can see how, if you don't know Brancusi or modern sculpture, how you might not "get it," but to us, it was fantastic. I would think that simply the fact that it... More

The place is situated close to Pompidou Center in an area full of artistic energy. Inside you can find a reproduction of Constantin Brancusi's workshop and it seems that the light dances with some of the great artist' sculptures. If you're a fan of art, this is a must. Art students are drawing sketches of exhibited pieces and there a... More

Staying in Les Halles

Neighborhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
