The newly-opened Centre Pompidou-Metz Museum is France's biggest art space and is also "the world-famous center's first foray beyond Paris." Designed by architects Shigeru Ban and Jean de Gastines, this architecture stands out due to its ultra-funky woven timber roof that resembles a Chinese straw hat.

The 10,700-square-meter Centre Pompidou-Metz Museum can hold multimedia shows, live performances and different installations. The museum will also contain 780 works by the likes of Picasso, Matisse, Miró, Braque, Chagall, Brancusi and Giacometti. Stats for Straw Hat Rooftops Trending: Older & Chilly
