Louvre Pyramid

This pyramid form structure was designed by the Chinese-born American architect I. M. Pei and is located at the center of the Louvre plaza.

The glass pyramid was the latest addition to the entrance of the Louvre, the world-famous museum in Paris, France. When the architect Pei presented the project, general opinions were mixed, as it was clearly not integrated into the surrounding buildings. Standing 71 feet high, the steel construction supports 603 diamond-shaped and 70 triangular panes of 21 millimetre thick glass, giving the structure a very elegant and transparent appearance. Completed in 1989, the pyramid allows light into the museum’s reception center and is certantly the most famous of the ‘Grands Projects’.
