Sound and image tours of the online Centre Pompidou

The Centre Pompidou updated its website in 2012, creating a platform to distribute digital content (www.centrepompidou.fr). The platform represents the key point of entry for access to the centre’s full online offer, from digitised works of art and material on art and art history to sound recordings, videos, archives, and bibliographical information. The main ambition of the new platform was to be original and innovative. A year on from its launch, Emmanuelle Bermès looks back at the initial results and outlines the platform’s architecture, which is based on the principles of the semantic web.
