I visit the Pompidou and the Eglise Saint-Merri every time I come to did I miss this fabulous door and mosaic? Thanks for sharing...I'll look for it on my next trip.

I immediately went to my very useful book "one thousand buildings of Paris" Sorry the building is not in the book, however I recommend that you get a copy of this book. it contains pictures and descriptions of 1000 Paris buildings. It was published in 2003 by Black dog and leventhal publishers, inc. 151 west 19th street ny,ny 10011 and distributed by workman publishing co. 708 broadway ny,ny 10003 You can use the link from my website at


Love the door and building and especially the mosaic


I thought I'd posted a message here but it doesn't seem to have turned up yet - so here goes again!

The answer to your question is written on the building. It was designed by ed architectes in 1992. More info can be found here:


thanks so much for the tip about the book. I will have to get it.
