The University of Queensland, Architecture Theory Criticism History (ATCH) Research Centre's PhD Candidate Rosemary Willink is currently in Paris as a Terrence and Lynette Fern Cité Internationale des Arts Residency Fellow. Her project involves the study of two examples of museum expansion by the Centre Pompidou: The Centre Pompidou Metz (2010) and the Centre Pompidou Mobile (2011-2013). While drastically different in scale and duration - the Museum in Metz is a permanent architectural icon by Shigeru Ban Architects, while the mobile museum designed by Patrick Bouchain was made to be regularly dismantled and transported - they share the aim to extend the Centre Pompidou's footprint in line with the government's decentralist agenda. Identifying how architecture is instrumentalised for cultural policy in France, the project aims to establish a more expansive definition of architecture and its role in the cultural economy.
